Is it just me or does it feel as if the folks at Fun Fun Fun Fest put together a festival that is catering to my own wants and desires? Taking a look at the schedule this year it’s mind boggling how many bands from earlier decades that are dear to my musical heart are bunched up with current favorites who are blazing new grounds for bands of the future.
I’m starting with a band from the 90′s that probably didn’t get the recognition that they deserved back then, but still have managed to continue to put out solid recordings and stay relevant in a scene that sees little longevity. Superchunk formed in 1989, put out their first record in 1990 and 20 years later their latest release. My personal musical relationship was secured in the mid 90′s with Foolish held strong through 2001′s Here’s To Shutting Up. Two decades of putting out quality records, it’s difficult to think that they are going to be able to play everyone’s, much less my own favorites.
Superchunk play the Orange Stage Friday @ 6:50 p.m.
