Good, Old, and Heavy

We hate to break it to you, but there will never be another decade like the Nineties. There will never be another TV show like Friends, a president like Bill Clinton, or a rap legend like Tupac. But the decade you long for is also responsible for a lot of the crap we’re sick of today, like reality TV, Britney Spears, and lower back tattoos. One reason for you to still love the Nineties is acid jazz and funk group the Brand New Heavies, a European import that gave us the soundtrack to our flannel-shirt-wearing, Sega-loving existence. You can reminisce at the Hard Rock Live tonight, when the group coheadlines with raspy-voiced songstress Macy Gray.

N’Dea Davenport, the lady of the group and the voice behind the hits “Never Stop” and “Brother Sister,” seems like she kinda misses the Nineties too. “There’s not enough focus on the arts; there’s not enough focus on the music and the different things that people can hold onto. There’s been a crazy dumbing-down in the industry,” she says. We see you nodding your head in agreement, so head to Hollywood and shake your body to some good music. The show begins at 8:00. Tickets start at $37. Visit or
Tue., Aug. 14, 8 p.m.
