Music Menu: The Lemonheads, Left On Crates

Posted By on Sun, Jun 28, 2009 at 10:20 AM

The Lemonheads Evan Dando and The Lemonheads are back on the oft-toured circuit with the twangy new collection of tunes called Varshons (produced by Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes). The record features Kate Moss (the new wavish "Dirty Robot") and Liv Tyler (the acoustic "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye") along with a confounding G.G. Allin cover, but other than that it's Dando all the way with his slacker vocals and guitars that reliably deliver. Visulite Theatre (Samir Shukla)

Left On Cates At first glance, Left On Cates may seem like just another teenage rock band, letting out their sexual and social frustrations through throaty vocals and sing-along melodies ... well, maybe at second and third glance, too. This Raleigh quartet may not be tackling anything new, but they are working their way out of the ordinary with recognition from mtvU as one of the best campus bands, and by opening for major acts such as Senses Fail and Deerhunter. Hey, sometimes a little of the familiar makes for the best time. With Hotspur, We Are Masked, The Fire Tonight and Sundrone. Tremont Music Hall (Sam Webster)
