- The Smash Mouth Sound: the template of ’90s alternative party rock, where contemporary pop and ’60s garage rock melodies pogo with ska and surf-punk riffs
- “Walkin’ on the Sun”: the breakthrough 1997 #1 hit that defines the group’s modern-retro leanings, and something you shouldn’t do in open-toed sandals
- “All Star”: the 1999 anthem that landed on the charts across the world, earned the band a Grammy nomination, and inspired a little underdog named Shrek
- The Covers: the Monkees’ “I’m a Believer,” War’s “Why Can’t We Be Friends?,” and Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” are amongst the many classic rock nuggets to receive a Smash Mouth overhaul
- The Buzz: according to singer Steve Harwell, “We’re super excited to hit the road this summer with the guys from Tonic! Get ready because as you know Smash Mouth will be bringing the party!”
- The Tonic Sound: an encapsulation of the emotive side of alternative rock, but with decidedly rootsy influences
- For Fans Of: The Verve Pipe, Better Than Ezra, and Dishwalla
- “If You Could Only See”: the breakthrough 1997 #1 hit that stuck to the charts for 63 weeks, and a rude thing to say to a star-nosed mole
- The Buzz: according to singer Emerson Hart, “We are looking forward to playing music with some old friends and being able to actually watch them play. It’s going to be a fun summer!”
The Maryland Theatre
One million bricks. That's what remained of The Maryland Theatre after a fire damaged it in 1974 and it subsequently fell into disrepair. Luckily a local businessman, a funeral director, and a group called Citizens to Save The Maryland Theatre joined forces to rescue it from the scrap heap and revive its 1915 glory. Not only did they polish its arabesque proscenium arches, curved orchestra boxes, and medallion moulding, they straightened up all the other neoclassical and art-deco elements that fill its five stories. Today, thanks to their efforts and the fact that Americans haven't gotten bored with entertainment, the venue is once again a go-to spot for musicals, bands, and standup acts.
