Mop-topped crackhead Evan Dando wrote an entire catalog of forgettable pop nuggets that laid heavy about the ‘90s and propelled him, however temporarily, into the public eye. He managed to crap out a couple half-baked semi-hits with his band the Lemonheads, and scored his biggest commercial success with a tepid cover of “Mrs. Robinson.” His catchy, over-simplified pop drivel was the perfect counterpoint for his douche-next-door good looks. Best of all, his spoiled-brat attitude made for one seriously grating trust fund kid of a rock star. Perhaps as punishment for our sins, Dando is touring once again, and bringing his once-crack-addled, Courtney Love-loving, mossy-faced, prep-schooled minstrel show right into your soul. You know, because those who forget history . . .

“Someone's jealous they couldn't get Evan's action back in the day. Maybe try taking a dump in a hotel suite.”

“How did a troll get a job writing for this paper?”

“This writer is simply angry at himself for some reason. Dando had his troubles just like everyone, but he also brought a lot of joy to a lot of people. Regardless of his background or experiences, every person should have a chance to reinvent themselves. Maybe the writer from this pointless publication should try not to be such a snide, insecure, rude fuckface and either reinvent himself into a nicer individual, either that or crawl into a hole and die.”
