The Flywheel date in Easthampton is actually just Dando solo. No Lemonheads.

Is miss the '90s. When Nirvana broke, it was like a breath of fresh air, but then the internet killed everything.

"Is miss the '90s. When Nirvana broke, it was like a breath of fresh air, but then the internet killed everything."

worst opinion ever.

Beyond his chiseled good looks, Dando actually has a pretty good ear for hooks.

Posted by Anonymous | September 10, 2010 3:46 PM

Unfortunately he's spent most of the past 20 years too wasted to do anything with those hooks.

"worst opinion ever."

Where you even alive in the 90s? Not saying simply born, but buying records pre-1990? The internet has definitely impacted music. Bands become huge without even playing a gig nowadays.

Reality Bites is a really good movie

Reality Bites is not just a movie, but also a fact.

@ 4:00

yea. i was in grad school in the 90's.

if you think Nirvana was "a breath of fresh air" i really hate to know what you were listening to before Nevermind came out. great band/record and all, no doubt, but only earth-shattering to kids who took their music advise from MTV. Pixies and Janes Addiction already changed the landscape and paved the way for Nevermind's success.

you know what else i remember in the 90's?
reading CMJ, Select, NME etc to try to find some good music, being fed bullshit hype and rushing out to buy that supposedly brilliant new cd for $25 because it was import-only; coming home with anticipation only to find ONE FUCKING GOOD TRACK and my dinner money down the drain. ramen again tonite!

so...yea, you can keep the 90s. im perfectly happy in the internet age; to be able to find music on my own and form my own opinion on records without wasting time and money on hyped-up bullshit.

I still have that CD longbox that letterman is holding.
Not that exact one, of course. I mean, I have that somewhere in my parent's house. I miss those. Or, I would miss those, if I still bought CDs.

You know, it's a SHAME that Dando's looks and personality have obscured the fact that he could, on occasion, right a really catchy pop song.

4:35 is an ignorant douche.

Evan and Juliana used to hang out together in Boston all the time...does anyone here remember their collaboration w/ Howe Gelb of Giant Sand? I think it was Fruit Child Large or something silly like that. Fun show, though.

lemonheads have a lot of great songs. have you never heard "big gay heart"?

Posted by Anonymous | September 10, 2010 5:08 PM

This is a total pass. I def wasn't seeing soft shit bands like the lemonheads in the early 90's (YES I WAS SEEING MUSIC THEN!) and I wouldn't pay money to see Mr. Dando now.

Daily Poll:
Who is over more?

Evan: ___

Reward? You DON'T have to go to the Merc either night.

apparently Dando was best in the studio after his 2nd or 3rd line of blow and would get worse after each subsequent one.

Posted by Anonymous | September 10, 2010 6:44 PM

These are my favorite kinds of shows. It's too "lame" for all the hipsters looking for the hot new thing, so the only people who will be there are people who actually enjoy the music. "A total pass"? Better for the rest of us.

"This is a total pass. I def wasn't seeing soft shit bands like the lemonheads in the early 90's (YES I WAS SEEING MUSIC THEN!) and I wouldn't pay money to see Mr. Dando now. "

So if my math is correct...you've been a douchebag for almost 20 years now?

Posted by Anonymous | September 10, 2010 7:07 PM

Dando makes a mean heroin hummus platter.

RE; 3:29

I think what there reacting to is that line that gets pounded into your head on
MTV/VH1 classic “Nirvana changed it all”.

P.S.
Afghani humus is the shizzznitt.

how much does it cost for juliana to write a song for me?

Posted by Anonymous | September 10, 2010 11:40 PM

BIG LOL at the price tag on a song by Juliana Hatfield - $1,000

Oh yeah and that movie about the internet with Sandra Bullock was great.

UPDATE:

"
While they have shared plenty of stages - it has never been quite like this. Expect the show to be filled with old songs from both artists, some new songs, some cover songs and, of course, amazing harmonies. In speaking of these upcoming shows Juliana shares "In the past when I worked with Evan it was always in a strictly auxiliary capacity - backup singing, bass playing - but now that we will be on equal footing I think we could do a lot of damage. I've always thought that Evan was an underrated songwriter.....his good looks and antiestablishment attitude have overshadowed his skills." And, Evan reminisces "Juliana and I first met and started playing music together when we were 19. Since then Juliana has only gotten better and better. Now it's like playing with someone I'm a huge fan of and totally revere."
