Mark McGrath brought his fashion-defying hair and summertime favourite “Under the Sun” tour back to Columbus with another collection of bands most people thought broke up years ago to remind everyone of a time when records were sold over a counter and alternative-guitar-pop-rock ruled the airwaves.

Clear sky, temperatures in the 80s and thirteen national bands playing to a packed audience lounging around on the LC’s lawn.

Review: Dashboard Confessional & Third Eye Blind at The LC

Matt Ellis Matt Ellis Review: Dashboard Confessional & Third Eye Blind at The LC

There’s really nothing that can beat seeing musically irrelevant bands that time kinda forgot on the LC’s outdoor stage. I say that sincerely. The past few years has seen some of my favourite bands from yesteryear tossed back up onto a stage to belt out summertime friendly radio hits to a big green hill full […]
