Friday Night: The Lemonheads At Fitzgerald's

The Lemonheads Fitzgerald's February 10, 2012

The Fitzgerald's air was heavy with '90s nostalgia Friday night, as fans flocked to see The Lemonheads. The band is currently on tour performing their lauded 1992 release, It's a Shame About Ray, in its entirety.

Despite the fact that front man Evan Dando originally hails from frigid Boston, he seemed the warmest dressed for Houston's uncharacteristically cold weather, clad in multiple layers, including a flannel button-down and knit beanie.

In an interview with Dando last week, we noted how refreshingly coherent and affable he was, refuting the previously accepted belief that he's spacey and drug-addled, at best. He may have looked weathered as hell at Friday's show, but his lucidity was intact.
