90s rock sensation Dishwalla took the stage of the Megatent Libis for a night of nostalgia and good old alternative music. The setting was intimate – cozy, carpeted with enough alcohol to go around, highlighted with an atmospheric lighting…but the mood was ecstatic. Why not? A serving of local music inclusive of Up Dharma Down and Wolfgang started the evening. And these are 2 of the finest in the land.
It really is astonishing to observe how the band is still in their tiptop shape – whether in their full electronic form or in their stripped back portion. And this contagious energy was one of the best things we enjoyed very much. Dishwalla still has it. Sure it’s not original vocalist, J.R. Richards up there, but (semi) new guy, Justin Fox did an amazing job keeping the soul alive. And we’re pretty sure everyone enjoyed it well. In this cozy, carpeted and intimate gathering of lovers of Dishwalla.
