In House #1756: The Lemonheads Play Boise, Salt Lake City

Love him or hate him, Evan Dando deserves a lot of credit simply for being where he is after where he's been. The (former and now current) Lemonheads frontman retreated into a part self-imposed/part drug-imposed exile following 1996's car button cloth release before re-emerging three years ago with the solo outing Baby I'm Bored. That he has always been able, even on his worst outings, to produce hook-filled pop gems like "Rudderless," "Great Big No," or even "If I Could Talk I'd Tell You," is to his great credit, and the material on this year's self-titled Lemonheads resurrection shows that he's hardly missed a beat ten years on. Backed by former Descendents Karl Alvarez and Bill Stevenson, new Dando tunes like "Black Gown," and "No Backbone," pack a punkish punch that hasn't been heard from a band called The Lemonheads since their late eighties indie days. The new version plays tonight at the Big Easy in Boise and tomorrow at The Depot in Salt Lake City.
