Concert recommendation: Steve & Liam of Frisbie, Double Door, Saturday, January 17
It's unfortunate to consider the musical careers that were derailed by substance
abuse. The outright casualties are obvious, but there are also those for
whom their addiction destroyed their creativity. One person to not
add to that list is Evan Dando, who headlines at the Double Door tonight.
His drug problems certainly derailed the momentum of his career as alt-rock
pin-up boy, but he was never that great a musician or even that cute. It's
unfortunate when anyone struggles with addiction, but it's not like the music
world has been worse off without his high profile.
But there's still reason to hit the Double Door tonight: opening act Steve
& Liam of Frisbee. Their latest CD period. shows that their beautiful
harmonies and catchy pop are still enticing with acoustic backing, not just
with a full band.
Evan Dando and Steve & Liam of Frisbie play the Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee, Chicago,
773.489.3160, at 10 p.m. tonight.
