Fans of 90s alternative/modern rock music will know Evan Dando's name for being the frontsman for The Lemonheads...
I thought I was late, arriving at 7:30pm, but as the clock rolled into 8:30, I was told by a fellow photographer that the opening band, The Shining Twins, wasn't going to make it. I suspect they were stuck in traffic or something.
It was okay, I don't think the audience there last night cared for anything other than Evan Dando and the Lemonheads, although people were a bit antsy, wondering when the opener was going to go on (there was no formal announcement).
Evan Dando Setlist
Anyway, since the original album clocked under 30 minutes, they did throw in a few songs from the later years, including "Hospital" from The Lemonheads' come-back 1996 album, Car Button Cloth and "No Backbone" from the self-titled 2006 album. Please refer to the TWO setlists - one with the normal band, and a second one just for Evan, who played a brief thirty minute solo set, taking in one or two requests.

Well, I had a good time, if you're a child of the early 90s, you'll want to re-live your childhood by seeing the Lemonheads on tour.
