"Reliving my High School days seeing the Lemonheads at Bowery Ballroom." -chrissanchez
The Lemonheads (Evan Dando w/ ex-Zero Boys Vess Ruhtenberg (bass) and Mark Cutsinger (drums) along with NYC-based guitarist, Xan Aird) headlined a show at NYC's Bowery Ballroom last night (6/25). The band is currently on tour in support of their new covers record that was produced by Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers (who are playing Riot Fest in Chicago this year).
Openers for the show were Boston's Varsity Drag, and The Legends. Varsity Drag is Lemonheads co-founder Ben Deily's new band, BUT Ben did not actually play with the Lemonheads (just with Varsity Drag). For the Legends, it was their fourth of five NYC shows they played while they were here in NYC. Their fifth happened at Pianos later that night.
