Eight Gigs: Merdog

Sat., June 11, 9 p.m., Fox & Goose Public House, $5

Seems as though local indie band Merdog is about as slippery as a half-mermaid, half-dog sounds like it would be; though the band released an EP last year titled Holy Yes, it’s presently nowhere to be found. The only morsel you can currently track down from this promising indie band is “Slow,” a single released last month. Full of honeyed vocals from lead singer Cynthia Elmore with Local Natives-esque backing, there’s much to enjoy, and those seeking more would do well to attend this EP release party for The Lucky Ones. Rich Corporation and Blues Oaks open up. 1001 R Street, http://merdog.bandcamp.com/
