Cost: $35 - $50+
CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: The Lemonheads made a short-lived splash on the 120 Minutes scene years ago, paving the way for frontman Evan Dando’s solo career — which never really took hold. His last album was in 2003. It’s anyone’s guess what he’s doing now. His shaggy, easygoing, indie, folksy pop rock was pleasantly inoffensive which might make this solo date (without a band), worthwhile. Or maybe not. — HH

From the venue:

The Lemonheads singer/guitarist/songwriter (and sometimes drummer) Evan Dando surfaced in 2003 with the beautifully sweet ‘Baby I’m Bored’. Mature and autobiographical, Dando’s first solo studio effort to shine is a stellar record that stripped him of his grunge label. At the time of recording, he was without the band which saw him lean more towards an achingly melodic alt-country rock sound.

Self-deprecating, these are songs of decline and coming back from that. The record includes “Hard Drive” and “All My Life” two tracks penned by Ben Lee and features contributions from producer/composer Jon Brion, producer Bryce Goggin, Tom Morgan, Giant Sand’s Howe Gelb, Calexico’s John Convertino and Joey Burns, ex-Spacehog frontman Royston Langdon, Come’s Chris Brokaw and Arthur Johnson.

‘Baby I’m Bored’ received a deluxe reissue for Record Store Day in 2017 that included a 24-page book and a second disc of unheard unreleased tracks, singles, b-sides and rarities.

“Dando has a flair for bruised melancholy that stands comparison with Gram Parsons and Alex Chilton” Q Magazine
