Lit w/ A Thousand Horses

When: Thu., May 10 2012

Veteran alt-rock band Lit is back in action. Fronted by two brothers, singer A. Jay Popoff and guitarist Jeremy Popoff, the group scored mega-hits in the late ’90s with the singles “Miserable,” “Zip-Lock,” and “My Own Worst Enemy,” but in the late 2000s, they went on an unexpected hiatus when the Popoff brothers had to deal with the death of their stepfather and serious injury of their mother (after a bad auto accident). A year later, drummer Allen Shellenberger was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and he died within a year. Eventually, Lit regrouped with new drummer Nathan Walker and guitarist/keyboardist Ryan Gillmor and booked studio time with artist/producer Butch Walker in 2011 to record their new disc, The View From the Bottom (due on June on Megaforce). The band will embark on the Summerland Tour with Sugar Ray, The Gin Blossoms, Everclear, and Marcy Playground in late June. Nashville-based opener A Thousand Horses, is an Americana/Southern rock quintet. They released a self-titled debut in 2010 on DGC/Interscope/Van Howes. Drummer Jonathan Carman (formerly of Leslie) joined the band last year. 7 p.m.
