The Juliana Hatfield Three Setlist
Whatever Forever Setlist
My favorite song on their set was "Born Bored", but the highlight has to be when they drew attention to "International Women's Day" (which was the same night, March 8th).
Soon as Whatever Forever ended their set, The Juliana Hatfield dedicated fans rushed to the front of the stage.
This was my fifth time seeing Juliana Hatfield, as either solo artist or with Evan Dando (of the Lemonheads) or with Minor Alps (with Nada Surf's Matthew Caws), so it is always nice to see her play again.
The nostalgic stage banters were fun to hear, especially when Hatfield tells us that the last time she was in the Twin Cities was 2003 and then asked if any of the audience saw them 12 years ago. Bassist Dean Fisher joked, "Their parents were at that show!"
Later on in the show, Hatfield wanted to get a bunch of 90s bands together, The Lemonheads, Letter to Cleo, Marcy's Playground, etc., in a music festival called "It Came From the 90s". In her mind, she's got it all sorted out, including the poster artwork and so on.
Juliana Hatfield Setlist
The encore was "Nirvana", a song from my first Hatfield album that I own, Hey Babe. Before playing it, Hatfield joked, "My G-String is giving me trouble."
Since they've been absent from Minneapolis and Saint Paul for over a decade, the band promised us, "We'll definitely come back to the Twin Cities."
