Coming To Your Local Bandstand: Lemonheads

Evan Dando of The LemonheadsThe thoughtful folks over at EvanDando.Co.UK sent over 22 nights' worth of Lemonheads North American tour dates, which as a long time fan we're more than pleased to relay. To immediately embark on a tangent, we're eyeballing that last date in Boston with particular interest. We're wondering whether there is any chance in hell of Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis (who applied searing guitar riffillation to the new Lemonheads tune "No Backbone" which you can download and/or stream here) stepping on stage that night, given his general proximity to Boston when not on tour. We'll have to go cross reference J.'s touring commitments for a moment... Hmm. Mascis is in the U.K. the previous week for the All Tomorrow's Parties Nightmare Before Christmas event. So there is a possibility. We are also curious to see whether there will be a second date in Boston added, since Dando and his current Descendents-descended sidemen have already inked for two-night stands in L.A., San Francisco and Chicago. Vagrant releases The Lemonheads, bandleader Evan Dando's first new record under the Lemonheads banner in a decade, on Sept. 26. Check out this e-card for some song streams from the record.
