Camper Van Beethoven

Why: Late last fall, driven by some combination of audio nostalgia and God trying to tell me something, I revisited (and in some cases visited for the first time) the entire oeuvre of Camper Van Beethoven. From the gloriously scrappy early records (II & III!) to the high-drama peak of 1989’s Key Lime Pie, it was a total blast—a journey in a unique indie-rock world seemingly without borders, limited only by these protoslackers’ moods and tastes and skill sets. Tonight, the great CVB take the stage at the Tractor. Until then, I command you to listen to Key Lime Pie’s “June” on repeat.
