Call it a perfect alignment of the stars, because there has been an awful lot of mid- to late-90s love upon us lately, like the recessionary return to lumberjack plaid fashions and the overcorrection of Courtney Loves meds, leading to the recent triumphant reunion of Hole. While the grunge revival has had time to bloom, an onslaught of something perhaps nobody is ready for yet may already be in the works the return of the post-grunge movement.
Thats right: Acts once relegated to late-night As Seen on TV infomercials for Non-Stop 90s Rock compilations are touring again and therefore sneaking back into the publics good graces. You can blame stalwart acts like Counting Crows, which never really went away, or you can look to bands like Sponge or Marcy Playground that are enjoying an uptick in popularity as of late. See how life is treating the later trio when the creators of Sex and Candy headline Roxys (309 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) Tuesday in the bars saloon. Marcy Playgrounds showtime is 10 p.m. with a $10 cover at the door. Call 561-296-7699, or visit roxyspub.309clematis.com.
