There are just some songs or decades that are unforgettable. If you know the hits of the 90s, you can fill in the blanks. You were probably singing while reading the lyrics, too.
SugarSmashGin is neither a new food craze nor a new alcoholic cocktail (fortunately); it’s a throwback. Last Monday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, and Gin Blossoms reminded us that music from alternative rock bands endure.
Before the sets of these three groups, Color It Red was on stage. Their cover of Juan dela Cruz Band's “Beep Beep” showed how Cookie Chua's vocals are definitely one of the best in OPM.
Smash Mouth then kicked off their set with “Everyday Superhero.” Steve Harwell and the band played songs from their latest album as well as their hits. The electrifying drum solo by the undeniably talented Justin Sutter was the highlight for me. The crowd was on their feet after that solo. “Walkin’ on the Sun,” “You Really Got Me,” “I’m a Believer,” and “All Star” wrapped up Smash Mouth’s performance.
Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, and Gin Blossoms are unquestionably rife with talent. Trips to memory lane aren’t always pleasant. Listening to these bands, though, is an exception.
