"Black dog Friday"

Things to do in Dallas. - Dallas Observer

"Black Dog Friday on the Plaza"

If you're heading out to see the Stars take on the Flyers on Dec 17th, then get there early and check out Black Dog Friday. They'll be playing the AT&T Party Plaza before the puck drops from 11 am til 1 pm. They'll be playing their debut single "You" from their upcoming EP, PLUS a slew of new music! All ages, free show and a good time had by all! - Dallas Observer

"Indie Band to play Spring Arts Festival"

Black Dog Friday, an indie/southern/rock band from Dallas TX, will make their debut in El Paso as the main performer at the 40th Annual Spring Arts Festival.

EPCC Pulse Radio will sponsor the band on March 24 at the Valle Verde Campus to introduce students to their new location.

“This is our first time playing at a school. We’ve been trying to get onto the college circuit for a while. El Paso is the first one to take a chance on us,” said Alex Gates, lead singer of Black Dog Friday. - Tejano Tribune

"BDF Takes over Addison"

Music should be felt and heard rather than talked about, which is why it is sometimes difficult to describe music without listening to it yourself. However, BDF’s 2016 single called “You” is so smooth and inviting, it’s surprising that it isn’t playing on the radio yet. The country-rock twang sound makes you think of long road trips, hanging out on the beach, or kicking back a few beers with friends. - Addison


Still working on that hot first release.



Black Dog Friday has been many things. With a full band, the sound can only be described as progressive southern rock & soul. With bluesy strums and twangy rhythm, there’s bound to be a song, style, tempo or feeling to make everyone get right. With inspirations spreading from the popular (Kings of Leon, Johnny Cash, Black Crows, The Go Getters) to the obscure (The White Buffalo, Kaleo, Jeff Buckley, Dave Fenley & The Good Deal).

Over the years Black Dog Friday (or BDF), have been able to enjoy some of the best things about being in a musical metropolis like Dallas. From headlining shows at Gas Monkey, Curtain Club and The Prophet Bar, to being supporting acts for artists/bands such as Ryan Starr, Thriving Ivory, Shawn James & the Shapeshifters, Carter Winter and Jason Castro.
