Hot Ticket: The Lemonheads @ Black Cat

Take a trip back to 1992 tonight  at Black Cat when The Lemonheads perform It’s A Shame About Ray in its entirety on the mainstage. To me this album was one of the handful of good memories I have during my middle school years, and played a part in the beginning of my love affair with rock music. It is a classic of the early 90s. Even if you didn’t catch it the first time around, Evan Dando’s warm, dreamy vocals, head-bopping tunes, and good looks can make a teeny-bopper out of anyone. Get in the mood with their video for It’s a Shame About Ray.

Alexia was born and raised in Arlington, VA. She has been a cellist since age four, and a lover of rock & roll soon after. The first tape she owned was “Make It Big” by Wham, and the first tape she bought was Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” and she still loves both. She was a member of local synth-rock outfit Soft Complex for several years, and has recorded with bands including Engine Down and Two if By Sea. By day she works for a non-profit distributing royalties to musicians and labels. She currently plays cello, lap-steel guitar and tambourine in the DC post-folk/Americana band The Torches.
