Evan Dando- The Red Room, Vancouver. July 16, 2005

Evan Dando by Keri Dubitz
I've always loved the Lemonheads and Evan Dando. It always seemed to me that he didn't want to be famous, since his songs were incredibly melodic sing-a-longs with some kind of oddball kink thrown for radio unfriendliness. Example?? This line is from a happy little ditty called "Being Around"

If I was your body, would you still wear clothes?
If I was a booger, would you blow your nose?
Would you keep it? Would you eat it?
I'm just tryin to give myself a reason, for being around.

He seemed really happy on stage, smiling and generally looking a lot healthier then I thought he'd look.
I missed him last time he was in Vancouver. At the last minute my friend and I decided to be lazy instead, and so we missed the debacle which was Courtney Love jumping on stage and taking over the show and flashing the audience.

He talked quite a bit. My favourite bit was about how he had come from Seattle by bus. Not a tour bus but a regular bus.
