Evan Dando is a genius. Dude can take the stage wearing what appears to be an oversized monk's robe, and the girls in the crowd still go nuts over him. At the same time, Dando's simple attire makes a bold statement. This is the 2000s, the outfit seems to say. The grunge era has passed, Dando isn't trying to capitalize on his studly status, and - most importantly - it's all about the music now.
The music. That's what brought the Lemonheads together in the late 80s, and it's what brought them back together nearly two decades later. And even though Dando does ditch the robe in favor of the jeans 'n' t-shirt combo, the music is what guides this rare performance. It's just Dando, two sidemen, and a stockade of pop-rock tunes that span the group's lengthy career.
You want candy? You got it. Reunions don't get much sweeter than this.
