Comprised of bassist Reeves, drummer Robert Mailhouse, and singer-guitarist Brett Domrose, Dogstar played material from their two previous and only albums, 1996’s Our Little Visionary and 2000’s Happy Ending, along with new songs from their upcoming, as-yet-unannounced album which they teased earlier this month, sharing that both new music and live shows were on the way.

In a pre-show interview with Billboard, Reeves described Dogstar as “something that’s part of my life.” Discussing the desire and decision to reunite the band, he explained, “I missed playing together, I missed writing together, I missed doing shows together. It’s something I’ve always missed. We came to a spot where we weren’t playing anymore, and I missed it… Once we started to play, and it felt good, and really positive and creative, that’s when it was like, ‘Okay, let’s make this happen.’”

Check out some fan-filmed footage from the show below.
