If you have fond memories of mid-90s stalwarts The Lemonheads, you may want to book a flight to New York City immediately. Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield, the group’s frontman and former bassist, announced today that they’d be taking the stage of local venue The Mercury Lounge to perform classic and new material along with a few covers on September 29 and 30.
"In the past when I worked with Evan,” sayeth the Juliana, “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."
There’s a SLIGHT chance the duo may make their way to Boston in the near future for additional performances. Here’s hoping whatever outings happen are successful enough to warrant a full US tour.
