‘Summerstage Family Day: the Verve Pipe’


Remember the days when TRL was bigger than the nightly news, Snake was the only entertainment option on your Nokia cell phone, and frosted tips were the bomb… diggity? Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, and the Fresh Prince ruled the airwaves, along with “The Freshmen,” the Verve Pipe’s heart-on-sleeve emo anthem of youthful indiscretion. In the 15 years following their one big hit, the band has since grown up–they’ve released three studio albums, a Christmas EP, and lead singer Brian Vander Ark became a grandfather. Here, the ’90s elders branch into children’s music. With the Zany Umbrella Circus, Oko Sokolo, and more.
