Nada Surf's finest moment came not during the unlikely pop chart ascension courtesy of the ubiquitous "Popular," but years later, when the band was seen as little more than a '90s alt-rock dinosaur fighting fate in the great tar pit of musical history. Seemingly forgotten by the masses, the New York trio (known to fans as "the singer," "the drummer," and "the seemingly out-of-place bassist with the hippie dreadlocks") heroically rebounding with the one-two punch of Let Go and The Weight Is a Gift, their two finest recordings released the early days of the '00s. Sadly that momentum was short-lived, as the band delivered the emotionally vacant Lucky, then followed that with the sure sign of any band's creative drought—a covers record. Your excitement for this show can be gauged by your answer to the following question: Does the world really need to hear Nada Surf's version of "Question" by the Moody Blues? EZRA ACE CARAEFF
