A Concert for Those of You Who Miss the 90's

Posted By on Mon, Mar 12, 2012 at 3:57 PM

You know how every summer there are package tours of 70's and 80's rock bands playing the outdoor amphitheaters of our fine country, with bands like Yes, Styx and Foreigner dragging out whatever version of their lineup is still alive to take advantage of the disposable income and nostalgia of baby boomer types? If you're under 35 or so, you've probably made fun of these shows, thinking that your generation would never stoop to such desperate measures of musical sentimentality. Guess what? It's happening to those of use who graduated from high school in the first half of the 90's now, as the Barenaked Ladies (a.k.a. my favorite band in the entire world circa 1994), Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Blues Traveler and Cracker are touring together and coming to Phoenix on July 25th.

My only question: why not just go all the way and the show a day-long experience? Call up Fastball, the Spin Doctors, Toad the Wet Sprocket and the Squirrel Nut Zippers. I'm sure they're not busy.
