After years toiling away, the Lemonheads suddenly hit big with 1992's It's a Shame About Ray
. Catchy and accessible enough to ensure mass appeal, yet well-crafted enough to stand as a respectable work, Ray
was not just a career highlight: It also made an unlikely teen idol out of songwriter/sole original Lemonhead Evan Dando. Sadly, he proceeded to waste most of the decade on a pathetic cycle of drug abuse, concert no-shows and erratic comeback attempts. He's cleaned up his act this millennium, gathered a new Lemonheads lineup and is performing Ray
in its entirety, along with various highlights from his career.
Chance of Dando Showing Up Too Stoned to Play or Not Arriving at All: Unlikely. Advance notice suggests he's been relaxed but thoroughly coherent onstage.
