He opened Liberty Lunch for Soul Asylum didn't he, in '93? Sure I've got a show somewhere where he says "Stay tuned for Soul Asylum!" after the 'Heads last tune.

I'm sure they did because I was at a Houston show with that billing that same year.

Good point. I liked Soul Asylum also but remember leaving about halfway through their set.

Thanks for posting those! I noticed in the press announcements that appeared this afternoon it referred to these as the first batch of dates with more to come soon. Hope Evan is part of the rest of the tour.

I'm interested to see what kind of setlist he'll deliver as an opener....not much pressure to play the hits...maybe stretch out some rarities or...dare I dream....some new stuff?

He's said a number of times that he doesn't like playing new stuff until it's been recorded and released.

Last time I saw him as an opener, supporting JAMC, he played a shortish Evan show. There was a great version of Let's Just Laugh in there, so it was far from just neutral-friendly favourites.

That sounds good! A few numbers off of Varshons and the self titled record would be most welcome :)

i think he played with Chris Brokaw when he opened for JAMC? weird seeing him play for a crowd that isn't all that interested in the opening act

Last time I saw him he opened for the Psychedelic Furs. He did a low key set, maybe 30-40 minutes. It was good, but left me wanting more.

Hoping to make it to the Bethlehem, PA gig, it's only about an hour away for me.

All accounts on the official pages are calling this a "co-headlining" tour. Doesn't look like anyone is opening up for anyone, and all the acts here are of (arguably) equal stature. Not really a nostalgia bill, because all these names are continuing to put out fine, relevant records, but DAMN if this doesn't seem like the right time for this. People seem to be inhaling all the '90's drugs' in the baggie with new noses these days. A quick look at the midnight pages put up by the teen girls on Tumblr these days will show you a ton of old 90's ephemera from the pages of Sassy and Spin.

Considering the giant back catalogs of all the bands on the bill, I'm betting we'll see about an hour's worth from each. If not more. Maybe Evan on his cranberry colored electric. Gonna be a great time.

I have a source in the Fountains of Wayne who tells me that, so far, pre-sales haven't been so great and there's some doubt whether they'll be able to play all the dates listed. Please Tell Your Friends About These Shows. If you have websites, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, etc, HELP THESE DUDES PROMOTE. This is such a special occasion.

Actually, I was mistaken about Chris.He doesn't play with Ev on this tour. Last nites show at the Paradise was excellent although, of course, shorter than usual.The place was crowded and his voice and playing was never better.
