Musical Appreciation: Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield

Friday night I met Lesley at Bell House (Which, by the way? Was located after the scariest rapiest walk I have ever taken from an F train in my life. Worst!) so that we could totally immerse ourselves in the our favorite kind of nostalgia (heartbreaky 90s, obvi) and see Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield. Teen idols!!!!!


It was pretty fuckinnggggg magical, I won't not lie to you. Awkward and sort of heartbreaking! They sang songs they wrote about each other with each other. It was almost too much at times; Les and I kept side-eyeballing each other. I mean..she sang EVAN. IT WAS TOO MUCH! But just enough.

To honor the occasion I dressed like a superhero.

DRESS, BELT, BOOTS: VINTAGE /// NAILS: CND SHELLAC 'WILDFIRE' /// LIPS: LIPSTICK QUEEN 'RED'

The show was cute and weird and great. He was really stoned (which was referenced often) and pretty funny and I would have preferred more early Lemonheads stuff but still. I loved every second.

I took some video of It's A Shame About Ray..even shtonerfaced and more than a lil bit homeless vibey, Evan Dando is dreamy times a jillion. CARTOON HEARTS!

WOW! Wonderful post! I so love living your experiences vicariously. Almost made me feel like I was there. Great video, totally caught the vibe of nostalgia and romance. Made me feel a little sad even, but then you crack me up all at the same time. THANKS I needed that this morning. And BTW superhero vixen, you are, you look marvelous!

STOP IT. I saw Marina & the Diamonds at Bell House last year and was so convinced I was going to die. Whose idea was it to plonk a venue in the middle of nowhere anywhere? There's a frickin LUMBER YARD behind it too!

What I would've given to have been Juliana circa losing her virginity.

Bell House has the most rad things ever. Getting there is pretty much a dead run.

aww love, love, love my dear! I saw these two together at a place downtown and I so agree, growing up singing along with them and then seeing them together was just magical. I blogged about it too :-) I had tickets to this show but couldn't get anyone to come with me! And now after reading you walked down such a shady street to get there, I'm glad I decided not to trek out to BK solo on a Friday night... so glad you enjoyed it!! They are awesome!
