The Wallflowers at Cannery 

Jakob's Latter

Jakob's Latter
Nostalgia is a popular drug these days, and a yearning for the simpler times of the mid ’90s—when MTV actually played videos and people heard new music on the old-fashioned FM radio—appears inevitable. Jakob Dylan & Co. are hoping to capitalize on this phenomenon, plumbing the wallets of wistful thirtysomethings with this summer’s release of a greatest hits compilation, Collected, 1996-2005. A band that gained notoriety largely on the strength of their frontman’s paternity, The Wallflowers nonetheless produced some iconic “modern rock.” (Heh, oh the nineties!) “One Headlight” remains catchy as hell, and the slow burn of “Sixth Avenue Heartache” is the perfect showcase for Dylan’s raspy nonchalance. Opening up is Aussie transplant and current Nashville resident Butterfly Boucher.
