FROM: Gainesville, FL
The band reunited for the first time in over 5 years to play the New Granada Records showcase at the Plan B Block Party in Tampa, FL. Saturday 10/05/2013, followed by a hometown show at The Atlantic the next month.
Will there be future shows? Will there be more music?
Yes and Yes.

As Dear & Glorious Physician, the Westfalls have honed a sound caught between two eras: think art-rock 70’s (ala Talking Heads) and mid-90’s college rock (ala Pixies).
Brothers Charles and Andrew began collaborating seriously in the summer of 2002 and after several permutations, additions and subtractions, the band took its ultimate shape in the early 2005 with the addition of sisters Jillian and Robin.
Relentlessly covering the southeastern US, Dear & Glorious Physician have quickly become a regional favorite within the independent music circuit.
Storming onto the stage or out of your speakers, the experience of Dear and Glorious Physician is to encounter a violent young art form. It's all kunst, all cream, and all kick.
“An impressive debut that is at once both battering and gorgous.”
"...they come off with the power and band skill of the early Pixies salted with the southern-preach of atmosphere of early X.”
