Actual Emails of Actual Bands Rejected From Mark McGrath’s Actual Under the Sun Tour

by

Courtesy of founder/organizer/smirkmerchant Mark McGrath, the shamelessly ’90s-talgic “Under the Sun 2013” tour*–featuring Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, Gin Blossoms, Fastball and Vertical Horizon–touches down at the Paramount in Huntington tonight [8 p.m./$71.25-$106.75], aiming to take you back to that carefree, breezy radio alterna-pop era before drone strikes and Amanda Bynes meltdowns.

So many artists from that time, so few slots on this tour! A ton of bands actually reached out to McGrath to get on the bill, although ultimately they were shot down. We got ahold of actual** emails from a couple of them.

*Not to be confused with Alex Alexakis of Everclear’s shamelessly ’90s-talgic Summerland tour.

**And by actual,” of course, we mean completely fake.”
