The Lemonheads


These days, “playing a beloved album live in its entirety” is the new “plowing through the hits at country fairs,” and for better or worse, It’s a Shame About Ray is the Lemonheads Record Everyone Can Remember, so tonight at Maxwell’s, they’ll be performing all of its 13 tracks. Hey, more power to them, the original “Mrs. Robinson,” and Evan Dando’s creditors, but this repeated trotting out of Ray also has the effect, somehow, of underlining how little resonance it holds once listeners have earned their learner’s permits.
