It’s not a shame that the Lemonheads are touring this fall

God bless ’90s nostalgia. Evan Dando’s decided to do a run of tour dates in October and play The Lemonheads seminal album, It’s a Shame About Ray, in it’s entirety. Evan’s done this in the past (like at SXSW 2008) but I don’t think he’s ever done any extended touring to play the ’92 album.

So many great Dando compositions on It’s a Shame About Ray but I think my favorite is “Rudderless” (the studio version featured Juliana Hatfield on backing vocals).
