Jean jackets, overalls and high-waisted pants aren’t the only remnants of the ’90s still thriving today.
This weekend, the Rialto Theatre is turning back the clock with three bands that rose to fame around the end of the century. Here are the shows to check out to get your ’90s music fix.
- Toad the Wet Sprocket is first up on Thursday, Sept. 14. This Santa Barbara, California, band released four albums in the ’90s that included hits “Walk On the Ocean” and “Fall Down,” but their single “All I Want” will likely be stuck in your head at the end of the night. In 2015, the band proved it’s still got it when it released a six-song EP “Architect of the Ruin” on iTunes. Doors for Thursday’s show open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $36 to $65 with VIP packages available.
- Warren G: The G Funk Experience hits the stage Friday, Sept. 15. Warren G, the man behind 1994’s “Regulate” with Nate Dogg, is returning to Tucson after a June 24 show at the Rialto was postponed. The rapper had several Billboard chart-climbing hits, including “This D.J.,” “I Shot the Sheriff” and “I Want It All,” but “Regulate” and “Nobody Does It Better” will probably be the songs you’ll be singing long after the show. His recent singles include “My House” from the 2015 EP “Regulate … G Funk Era Pt. II.” Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $23 in advance, $25 at the door.
- Modest Mouse, closes out the weekend on Sunday, Sept. 17, but if you waited to buy a ticket you’re out of luck. The show is sold out. Formed in Issaquah, Washington, in 1993, Modest Mouse is known for its 2004 song “Float On,” which peaked at No. 68 on the Billboard charts. Since then, the band has released three full-length albums, including “We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank” with the hit “Dashboard.” The band’s most recent album, “Strangers to Ourselves,” came out in 2015. Our money says “Lampshades on Fire” will be stuck in your head after the show. Doors open at 7 p.m.
