Lemonheads continue tour, three stops in the Carolinas

Published

on

Since they were formed in Boston, Mass, in 1986 by Evan Dando, the family tree of The Lemonheads has many twisted tentacles and tangential branches, and a host of one-liners etched into its bark. Anyone could be a Lemonhead, but for how long and who knows? Leastways, they’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with Evan throwing discordant chords against alt-country-tinged melodies, playing that light and dark card. Through their ranks passed Descendents, Blake Babies, Dinosaur Jr and members of Fuzzy.

The Lemonheads bring together two unique takes on The Eagles’ ode to romance and the road, ‘Take It Easy’. Taken from their Varshons 2’ album that brought together intriguing takes on everyone from Nick Cave and The Bevis Frond through to John Prine, Yo La Tengo, Lucinda Williams and Paul Westerberg.
