Daniel Street continues its growing tradition of hosting older bands that still have steam left with The Lemonheads. The last time The Lemonheads performed in CT was back in February of 2007 for the now defunt Play Magine's 3rd birthday bash that was held at Toad's Place, with openers Killing Kings, The Mountain Movers, Shadowgraphs and Arms & Legs.

For anyone new to The Lemonheads, they are an alternative rock band formed in 1986 by singer/guitarist Evan Dando, who has been the band's only constant member. Since forming, recording, and touring lineups of the band have also included co-founders Ben Deily and Jesse Peretz, John Strohm (Blake Babies), Doug Trachten, Corey Loog Brennan, Byron Hoag, Ben Daughtry, Juliana Hatfield (Blake Babies), Nic Dalton (Godstar, Sneeze, The Plunderers), Dave Ryan, Patrick "Murph" Murphy (Dinosaur Jr), Bill Gibson (Eastern Dark), Mark 'Budola' Newman, Kenny Lyon, Vess Ruhtenberg, Devon Ashley, Karl Alvarez and Bill Stevenson (Descendents), P. David Hazel and various others. The Lemonheads' popularity grew in 1992 with the album It's a Shame about Ray which was produced, engineered, and mixed by The Robb Brothers (Bruce Robb, Dee, and Joe), followed by a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson", which eventually became one of the band's most successful singles. Cited as one of the most important alternative rock groups, The Lemonheads were active until 1997 and went on hiatus, but reformed with a new lineup in 2005 and released The Lemonheads in the following year. The band released its latest album, Varshons, in June 2009. The End Records

The Candles is Josh Lattanzi’s first solo project (now a full band), encapsulating the varied styles and influences he’s picked up while recording and touring with the likes of Ben Kweller, Albert Hammond, Jr. (The Strokes) and the Lemonheads, to mention just a few. “Making music with such talented people for so long has been incredibly inspiring. I could keep making albums and touring with these artists who are so damned good at what they do, and I probably will, but it feels like the right time to do something that truly belongs to me,” the multi-instrumentalist says of the inspiration for The Candles’ debut, “Between The Sounds.”
