Loopster Live: The Lemonheads and Meredith Sheldon at Fitzgerald’s
The Loop Scoop continues its tenuous Reality Bites references with Evan Dando’s latest incarnation of The Lemonheads making an appearance at Fitzgerald’s last Friday to a near-sellout, enthusiastic, relatively mature (for Fitz) crowd. Maintaining our reputation for loud conversations during quiet songs, didn’t appear to affect the reputationally-prickly Dando, who in fact was clearly enjoying the performance.
For MANY tracks off the set list, Dando called out inspirations until bandmates shook their heads having exhausted their knowledge of his catalog. Dando undissuaded would pick up an acoustic and soldier on. Hardcore fans heard most of their favorite deeptracks, not simply reliving the days of It’s a Shame About Ray as touted.
