Welcome to 1996. Many bands from that rock-radio-friendly era are no more. Many others have not aged gracefully. But Fountains of Wayne, Soul Asylum and Evan Dando (of the Lemonheads) all still create and play vital, engaging, melodic power pop. The three-band-bill will be at the Cap Wednesday night. Let's hope they're all in the moood to party mid-week.
