MUSIC REVIEW

Dr. Dog bring confidence to House of Blues

Dr. Dog roamed freely through glitter and grit during a sprawling show Thursday at the House of Blues, where the band carefully balanced pop hooks with loose, jangly playing in a way that seemed both exacting and exultant.

Dr. Dog’s recently released “Be the Void’’ continues the Philadelphia troupe’s confident stride through quirky songcraft that focuses more on alluring textures than on strict genre rules. “Lonesome,’’ for instance, could split into a country song and a Beatles b-side at any moment, but ultimately sticks together - both in concert and on record - quite nicely.
