Guests at Northern Lights last week jumped at the opportunity to spend some time in what felt and sounded like a movie from the 90s, starring the Lemonheads.
Clifton Park was among the 50 added US dates to the extended “It’s A Shame About Ray” tour dedicated to playing the 1992 hit record of the same name. The Lemonheads were first formed in 1986 by Evan Dando, and Dando remains the band’s only original member in its modern form.
Local power-pop rock trio Charlie Watts Riots were among the opening acts. A female-led trio that I failed to catch the name of (replacing the Shining Twins on the bill) played prior to the Lemonheads. The lead singer looked a lot like a girl I went to high school and their music fit into the night, playing grungy, mellow rock with sultry vocals beneath a sea of too-bright lights.
