From a press release:

One day after the release of their first album in over two decades, alternative rock band Dogstar will perform at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Formed in the early 1990s, the independent, Los Angeles-based trio features Keanu Reeves on bass and dates back to his early days as a rising Hollywood actor who would eventually become a worldwide star. The album’s lead single, “Everything Turns Around,” is available to stream now.

“We are so excited to reintroduce Dogstar with our new single ‘Everything Turns Around.’ It feels like a fun summer song to us,” Dogstar said of the track that dropped on July 19.

“It has an uplifting message and a positive vibe that hopefully makes your day a little bit lighter. It’s one of our favorite songs to play live and can’t wait to share it on our upcoming tour.”

Their North American headlining tour supporting the album, titled “Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees,” is selling out across the country, so new dates were added today, including a stop at the Sherman (524 Main St., Stroudsburg). Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert starts at 8 p.m.

General admission tickets, which are $45 in advance, go on sale this Friday, Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. at the Sherman Theater box office at 570-420-2808 and online via and Etix. A “VIP Soundcheck Experience” package is also available that includes one ticket with early entry, access to the pre-show soundcheck, one group photo with Dogstar taken by a professional photographer, one exclusive VIP merch item, one commemorative VIP laminate and lanyard, express lane access at a designated merchandise stand, and more.

Citi is the official card of the Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees Tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, Aug. 22 at 10 a.m. until Thursday, Aug. 24 at 10 a.m. through the Citi Entertainment program.

In tandem with the announcement of “Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees,” their first full-length record since “Happy Ending” in 2000, the band debuted a performance-driven music video for “Everything Turns Around” that further pays homage to their LA roots.

In 2023, Dogstar epitomize the quintessential Southern California storytelling rock band they’ve always been in their hearts, making deeply resonant music that literally comes from “Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees,” the name of their new album which arrives on Friday, Oct. 6 via their own label, Dillon Street Records, distributed through ADA.

Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Bret Domrose, drummer Robert Mailhouse, and bassist Keanu Reeves, Dogstar was born in 1991 as a group of friends who came together in a SoCal garage and simply dreamed of playing music together and making a little noise, releasing their debut album, “Our Little Visionary,” in 1996. Now, all these years later, they took some time at the tail end of a historic lockdown to create a collection of songs that fully encompasses who they are as artists today.

The happily reunited rock trio’s official return came on May 27 – more than 20 years since their last show together – in their first public performance at the BottleRock Napa Valley music festival with a set that sparked fan and critical praise alike, including the live debut of “Everything Turns Around” and the next single, “Breach.” On July 18, Dogstar took over the Sunset Strip with an intimate, high-energy show at the iconic Roxy Theatre that sold out in minutes upon being announced. Throughout their 90-minute set, lucky fans got a sneak peek into their new era of music and live shows.

Selling out wherever they go, Dogstar is currently booked in over 40 cities, including a West Coast run this month, an East Coast leg in December, and three dates in Japan in early September.

“When creating this record, we were so excited about the idea of playing it live, so we are thrilled to finally announce the Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees Tour and to soon play for our fans all over North America and Japan,” the group stated.
