The Lemonheads

10:45ish, here come the Lemonheads! They came out and blasted into “Rockin Stroll”. From the first chord, first verse you can tell things seem to have fallen in line . There was no fumbling around on stage before starting, no looks of confusion on the face of Dando. My bud who’s here from last night turned quickly after the song and said “Like night and day!”, commenting on Dando’s lucidness, and ability of the band to play the music compared to the previous night (and all other nights of this tour). Last night they didn’t perform the entirety of “It’s a Shame About Ray”, even tho that’s what the bill said…

“Confetti” was awesome, and after the first chord of “It’s a Shame about Ray” Dando stops like he messed up or something, and then says “Nah, I’m kidding!” and they rocked that sh!t out. That’s when I knew they weren’t going to have one of those shows I’ve been reading about. I mean, even tho Dando’s sentences didn’t make a whole lot of sense, it at least looked as if HE knew what he was talking about. He was conversing with fans, between songs and between amp checks..

They played the [album portion of the show] …before the band left the stage leaving just Evan and an acoustic guitar to play solo. He never left the stage through the duration of the night, he played what was basically an entire acoustic set after finishing the album. If I had one complaint about the album portion of the show, it would have to be inviting a fan up on stage to sing the lyrics to “Mrs. Robinson”. What’s up with that? Her voice isn’t really projecting through the mic, it’s almost like an instrumental.. When Dando asked if someone in the crowd could sing it, we were shouting from balcony “how bout YOU sing it Evan??!?” … He didn’t go near the mic for that one. -[Jay Porks]

From the sound of it, Bowery Ballroom on Monday night (10/10) went
way better for The Lemonheads than their disasterous show at the venue the night before, even though the cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic “Mrs Robinson” was sang by an audience member because Evan claimed “that even he didn’t know the song anymore” (thanks Jonathan). Ever since the tour kick-off, The Lemonheads have had problems “doing the tour as marketed” (a quote from someone close to the band), either because of Evan’s alleged bout with pharyngitis or for other, possibly more nefarious reasons.

Regardless, the tour soldiers on with a show in Boston today, continuing until early November before taking a break and then hitting the UK.
