AWprofileDespite what the name might imply, show-goers should not expect to literally encounter a wild canine on stage for this performance. Then again, you never know. What can be expected is a polished set of alt-country tunes led by singer/guitarist Eric Pollard. Splitting his time between the frigid north and warmer climates, Pollard has been working hard on a new album that should be out later this year. He’s backed by a rhythm section of drummer Jeremy Hanson and bassist Steve Garrington, along with the guitar stylings of Jake Hanson and Erik Koskinen.
