San Francisco-based band Counting Crows quickly gained fame in the early 1990s when they filled in for Van Morrison and performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 1993 they released their debut album, August and Everything After, which featured the No. 2 single “Mr. Jones.” A few years later, their album Recovering the Satellites (1996) went platinum and spent 50 weeks on the Billboard chart, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard 200. In 2005 their single “Accidentally in Love” was featured on the Shrek 2 soundtrack and was nominated for a Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Award. In 2012 they releasedUnderwater Sunshine (Or What We Did on Our Summer Vacation), a collection of 15 interpretive covers.
Roots/rock band The Wallflowers, which is fronted by singer/songwriter and guitarist Jakob Dylan, is making its Filene Center debut. The group is best known for their Grammy Award-winning album, Bringing Down the Horse (1996), which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart and featured the hit single “One Headlight.” After a seven-year hiatus, the band most recently released Glad All Over (2012). In reference to the album, Rolling Stone said “[The Wall Flowers]…picked up where it left off: with sharp roots-rock songs full of sturdy hooks, deadpan jokes and pathos that sneaks up on you.”
