Gin Blossoms, Spin Doctors Headline Outer Banks Brew Thru Concert Series
National recording artists Gin Blossoms, the Spin Doctors, and Scars on 45 are coming to the Outer Banks this week as the final event in the 2014 Brew Thru Summer Concert Series at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo.
In late 80’s Gin Blossoms started to grow a huge following as the #1 local music draw in Phoenix, Arizona and certainly were the hometown hero’s of their favorite hang, Tempe, Arizona. The band’s indelible jangle-pop sound was evolving during radio’s diverse mix of hair bands and grunge music superstars like Nirvana.
Their most recent album, 2010’s No Chocolate Cake”,lands Gin’s back on the singles chart again with “Miss Disarray” and the album shot straight to # 1 on Amazon, hitting Billboard’s top 200 at # 73 and the Indie chart at #14.
To the wider world, the Spin Doctors might be the multi-million-selling icons behind hits like “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong”, not to mention the classic “Pocket Full Of Kryptonite”, but in 2014 Chris Barron (vocals), Aaron Comess (drums), Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White (bass) are reconnecting with the flat-broke twenty-something’s who scraped for dollars at the sharp end of the Big Apple blues circuit. The Spin Doctors have come full-circle.
Gin Blossoms, with special guests the Spin Doctors and Scars on 45, will take the stage at Roanoke Island Festival Park this Thursday, July 17.
Gates open at 5:30pm.
Tickets are $35 and available online here.
