Evan will be performing an intimate set featuring songs from his solo album and plenty of classic Lemonheads tunes along with several inspired covers, including some from his most recent covers album, 'Varshons' (06/09, The End Records).
Produced by Butthole Surfers ringleader Gibby Haynes, 'Varshons' was inspired by mix tapes that Gibby used to send to Evan. The collection is filled with strange bedfellows - from G.G. Allin to Texas troubadour Townes Van Zandt and garage rockers The Green Fuz. The Lemonheads make each track their own, with help from actress Liv Tyler, singing back up on Leonard Cohen’s “Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye,” and Kate Moss, who sings over the dance groove of Arling & Cameron’s “Dirty Robot,” which also features lead guitar by John Perry on loan from The Only Ones.
Supporting Evan will be The Candles, the first solo project from Josh Lattanzi, encapsulating the varied styles and influences he’s picked up while recording and touring with the likes of Ben Kweller, Albert Hammond, Jr. (The Strokes) and the Lemonheads.
With the first significant free time he had in years, Lattanzi began the process of crafting his debut in June 2008, writing and recording demos in his New York City apartment. The recording process then moved to a studio in Celeste, TX and the album was finished in NYC this past Spring.
The west coast sounds of the seventies that snaked like a vine from Gram Parsons through Evan Dando and Ryan Adams nestle up nicely to Lattanzi on such tunes as “Let Me Down Easy” and “Between The Sounds” while “Here Or Gone” finds the singer delivering a big “roll down the car windows” chorus that would make Tom Petty smile.
'Between the Sounds', the debut album from The Candles, will be available in Spring 2010.
