Since 2010, we’ve been deep in a ‘90s nostalgia explosion in which numerous hit makers from the decade have reunited in their original lineups, released new albums, and sold out tours across the world that are typically attended by people in flannel shirts and choker necklaces preserved for just these specific occasions. Veruca Salt is next up to bat, having announced upcoming new music and a concert tour last year. Tonight Louise Post, Nina Gordon, Jim Shapiro and Steve Lack are finally together again for the first time in over a decade, playing those fuzzy post-grunge jams that made them iconic, like ’94’s massive “Seether,” and reminding us that as much as we complain about ‘90s nostalgia we’re still very much in love with it.
