My So-Called Band
Sat, Jul 27 7:00 pm
The Cowan welcomes My So-Called Band on Saturday, July 27th. My So-Called Band parties begin with a favorite 90’s pastime: watching a little TV with a few (hundred, maybe thousand) F•R•I•E•N•D•S. A 10-minute video collage of pre-millennium pop culture (TV, movies, commercials, etc.) reminds you of a time when you knew all of the words to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” because, trust us, you still do. For the next two-and-a-half hours, This Is How We Do It: Hip-hop boldly reinvented itself - nothing will ever top Biggie, Tupac or the magical combo of Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog. En Vogue, R. Kelly & Aaliyah took mainstream R&B far beyond anything we’d heard before. From Ace of Base to Britney and Mariah, the 90’s wrote the pop perfection blueprint that is still being used today. These were the years of alternative rock radio’s time in the sun - Green Day, The Cranberries & Third Eye Blind ruled the airwaves, while Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails & Red Hot Chili Peppers raged against the machine.
