Resale Concert Tickets
Steve Martin and Martin Short
Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020 / 8:00pm @ Hard Rock Live At The Seminole Hard Rock HotelOne such act is the Leftovers, who hail from Portland, Maine. (Seems kind of weird to us outer-space city slickers, but the Queers themselves come from B.F.E., New Hampshire, after all). Their new album, Eager to Please, is out now, and it's full of the kind of repetitive, catchy, sub-three-minute songs that would have fit in perfectly with everything in the heyday of the sadly defunct Lookout Records. If none of that rings a bell, and you miss Weezer when they still sang about surfing and weren't writing crappy novelty hits, you will also probably dig the Leftovers.But if you are, in fact, into that great lost era of pop-punk, let's run through all the celebrity approvals of the Leftovers as proof of their awesomeness. Guest appearances on Eager to Please include Kim Shattuck of the Muffs, Brett Anderson of the Donnas, Parry Gripp from Nerf Herder (!), Coz Canler from the Romantics, and Jon Rubin of the Rubinoos. (Fun fact: The Rubinoos are that band that so lamely got ripped off by Avril Lavigne on "her" song "Girlfriend.")Oh, yeah, remember that Lookout mention? Avowed fans of the band include Lookout founder (and, of course, longtime Maximumrocknroll columnist) Larry Livermore, as well as Lookout-era god Ben Weasel, of Screeching Weasel.
