The Lemonheads Live Review – “Outside the Box music tells Boston stories”
“Dando’s current version of the Lemonheads includes guitarist Chris Brokaw, on a break from the Come reunion tour, and drummer Todd Philips, known for his work in Bullet LaVolta and Juliana Hatfield’s band, who sent out a Tweet announcing the show Saturday was his first in Boston in more than a decade. The set also included an appearance by original Lemonhead Ben Deily playing guitar and singing on “Don’t Tell Yourself” and “Uhhh,” songs where the Lemonheads were still in the throes of punk rock as the band worked on sharper indie-pop writing.
In “Hannah and Gabi” and “Hospital,’’ you could hear how the Lemonheads’ sound matured into a dark romanticism. And with “It’s a Shame About Ray” and “Into Your Arms” you were left wondering why the Lemonheads aren’t a few more steps up the recognition ladder.” – The Boston Globe
