Lemonheads, Shining Twins, Follower

When: Sun., Oct. 2, 9 p.m. 2011

When It's a Shame About Ray came out in 1992, Boston power pop trio the Lemonheads seemed destined for stardom. Not long after the album's release, leader Evan Dando even appeared on People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" list, though Dando always resisted attempts to hunkify his image. He also wasn't exactly pleased that the record label appended the band's uninspired cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson" to the end of the album; though it became a minor hit, it was hardly necessary aside sparkling, memorable originals such as "Alison's Starting to Happen" and "Confetti." On their current tour, the band is playing Ray in its entirety, though "Mrs. Robinson" has been absent from the set lists. It's a shame the touring band won't also include the album's original personnel, which included Dando's longtime pal Juliana Hatfield on bass.
