MOVED FROM PARISH: Evan Dando, Willy Mason [control room]

Evan Dando’s always been the most curious of the alternative-era rock stars. Six-foot-four and gorgeous, infusing pogoing punk-pop with jangly acoustic guitar and honeyed vocals, the Lemonheads leader, to me, offered nothing but a saccharine soothing balm. Never mind that his songs were about heroin. Thirty years since “My Drug Buddy” and over 15 since he released new original material, the still-standing songwriter returns with “Fear of Living,” which maintains those classic lopsided Lemonheads rhythms, and a solo tour, which promises “an eclectic mix of Lemonheads classics, new material, and covers.” Willy Mason opens with rambling, near-yodeling folk. – Carys Anderson
