Prepare yourself, Valley residents: The Keanussance will reach our part of the world later this summer. That’s because Dogstar, the L.A. alt-rock band featuring “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” actor Keanu Reeves on bass, is coming to Phoenix next month for a gig.


The band is scheduled to perform on Aug. 11 at Crescent Ballroom. The stop is part of Dogstar’s 30-city tour in support of the upcoming album “Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees,” their first record in more than 20 years.

The tour and the album were both announced on Wednesday and are part of the band’s recent revival. The record’s first single, “Everything Turns Around,” has already been released.

Dogstar, which also features vocalist and guitarist Bret Domrose and drummer Rob Mailhouse, originally formed in the early ’90s and served as a side gig for Reeves when he wasn’t acting. The band released two full-length albums, 1996’s “Our Little Visionary” and 2000’s “Happy Ending,” before breaking up in 2002. They reunited last year.
