Steve Wynn

Steve Wynn and his band the Miracle 3 will commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the release of Medicine Show with 2 shows in New York City and Los Angeles where they will play the classic album from start to finish for the first time. The Miracle 3--Steve's long-time band of Jason Victor, Dave Decastro and Linda Pitmon--did similar shows for The Days of Wine and Roses in 2001.

"Medicine Show is the weirdest, most idiosyncratic, nastiest, funniest and most revealing record the Dream Syndicate ever made," said Wynn in the liner notes from the record's 1991 reissue. "It's also my favorite." [Steve Wynn]

Tickets for that NYC show, to take place at the Bell House on June 27th, are on sale now. Clips of Steve and Dream Syndicate playing songs off Medicine Show back in the day, below...

What a great and underappreciated album. They toured opening for U2 around this time. U2 were really blowing up and Dream Syndicate were totally dwarfed and frankly out of their league. Opening for U2 is probably a mistake for most bands. Still this album was as good if not better than anything REM put out at the time.

Scott McCloud from Girls Against Boys' new band Paramount Styles is opening in NYC, I'm told.

Paramount Styles is great, and the stuff from their upcoming second album is killer.

U2 is a mistake. There is no one in rock music I loathe more than Paul "Bono Vox" Hewson, the most pretentious, name-dropping, fake moralizing, tax- dodging creep of a lead singer ever.
