Dr. Dog to Skip Phoenix?

Such is the plight of our desert city. We are not a destination for enough musicians. We are merely a stop between Dallas and L.A., Vegas and god-knows-where. Smaller acts are more likely to come to Tucson, and larger ones may skip us altogether. Sadly, it seems that Dr. Dog is no exception. But if local music blog ElectricMustache's prediction is accurate, we may just get a show in between L.A. and Santa Fe. I guess being thought of second is better than not being thought of at all.
