Bjork and Evan Dando

"Waking up in Wolverhampton and travelling to London. Putting on a dress and hanging out with Björk. Soundchecks, interviews, meet 'n' greets, guest spots with support bands and great, celebratory gigs... It's all in a day's work for Evan Dando. As The Lemonheads' leader's year of success, stress and crack confessions comes to an end we spend a day with the languid love-God, still cool as the pressures increase." [From NME 25th December 1993]
Evan is playing some solo shows this month. The first is December 18th at Maxwell's in Hoboken (tickets), and the next is one day after that at Southpaw in Brooklyn (tickets). All dates below...

Let the "I know someone that slept with/smoked crack with Evan Dando" stories begin.

say what you will about him, 'baby, im bored' is a totally underrated and amazing solo album.

We all used to HANG, rap about life, all that jazz. What, you think I am lying?

I was a dorky college student that wrote for my school paper. I instantly fell in love with "It's a Shame about Ray" when it came out. I went to see the Lemonheads on that tour, and ran into him outside the venue. I tried desperately to express how much I dug his music and have a quick chat, but he was a complete asshole--and wearing a fuzzy purple coat like he'd just come from a rave. And he was dirty and smelled. I've never been able to really enjoy any of his stuff since. Dickhead.

I worked with Evan's sister in Martha's Vineyard.

It is, in fact, a shame about Evan. Not sure about that Ray dude.

I agree with 'baby, I'm bored' being underrated. There was a moment I listened to that album over and over

"could people posting on this site be any less funny? wow, what a bunch of sucks."

By far the least funny and suckiest.

He wore a FUZZY PURPLE COAT, I understand why you stopped to "really enhoy any of his stuff".
Maybe he didn't waste time talking to a dickhead, asshole!
