Hey now: Smash Mouth are headed to White Plains, New York later this month following the 20th anniversary of their hit record Astro Lounge.
The gig will take place on a 40-foot stage built on Mamaroneck Avenue between Main Street and Martine Avenue as a part of the city’s 14 free concerts this summer on July 23. The White Plains Business Improvement District and Doug Panero will host the show, with rocker Nikki Hill providing support.
“We see it as a way to create a vibe and a brand for downtown White Plains, that there are a lot of things happening here in the summer and in the fall,” Kevin Nunn, Executive Director of White Plains BID told Lohud. “If you’re thinking of working or living in the city you have quite a lot of different events you could go to.”
Astro Lounge, which was released back in 1999, included the group’s most successful song, “All Star,” which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The California-based band went on to release “Then The Morning Comes,” as well as a cover of The Monkees’ “I’m a Believer.” They last released the track “Unity” with hip-hop artists Kool Keith and Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC last year, and have been playing occasional one-off shows.
They’re due next in Norco, California on July 4th, followed by gigs in Schenectady, Pasa Robles, and Detroit Lakes.
