The next song that followed was Tracy Bonham's "Mother Mother" -- I remember liking this song in high school and she was the first alt rocker I had seen who played a violin. Back in the summer of 1996 in true alt rock glory, I saw her as part of the lineup in one of my favorite shows ever: 7 Year Bitch, Tracy Bonham, Spacehog, & Everclear when they all toured together as part of The Summer Land Tour (after the Everclear song of the same name).
I actually don't really recall Tracy Bonham's set, but I do remember these four things fondly:
1. Everclear opened with "Summer Land" which was not a single off of their awesome record Sparkle and Fade. There are a lot of great songs (Santa Monica, Heroin Girl, Strawberry) on that record, but that one is my favorite.
2. I went to that show with my friends who were working at the same restaurant where I was dish washing. They were doing buss-ing or food-prep. Anyways we were only 18 and our older coworkers who were also at the show bought us several beers.
3. I purchased a t-shirt at the show that my mom hated for the rest of the time I owned it because it said on the back "white trash and proud of it"
4. Some kids were moshing and I think of one them was wearing a Marilyn Manson t-shirt, well he got his ass kicked and he had to be carried off on a stretcher which caused them to stop the show.
