The Lemonheads @ The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn: Photo Recap
Despite sloppy January weather and a late arriving weeknight crowd, The Lemonheads played a sold out show last Wednesday at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn . Opening for the Lemonheads was The Shining Twins, Food Will Win the War, and an electric set from New York’s Meeredeth Sheldon.
Evan Dando and The Lemondheads opened with five acoustic songs including “Being Around” and “Don’t Tell Yourself” from 1987′s Hate Your Friends, before breaking into a full performance of the band’s 1992 hit album It’s a Shame about Ray.
Although it was a thrilling blast to the past to see the Lemonheads play my favorite album in it’s entirety, missing was Julianna Hatfield’s presence and backing vocals. Despite Hatfield’s absence, lead singer Evan Dando provided enough energy and tequila shots from the crowd to keep things lively for the band’s two hours-plus set of music.
The Lemonheads continue their torrid 2012 tour with upcoming dates in Pittsburgh, Toledo, Grand Rapids and Indianapolis.
