If you were a teenager in the nineties you probably had a crush on hottie-extraordinaire and Sugar Ray front man, Mark McGrath. His Rolling Stone cover was most definitely looming somewhere on your poster-covered walls, and your Sugar Ray CD was undoubtedly scratched due to how often “Every Morning” was played on repeat. Apart from this being a very accurate description of myself in my tween years, the bands’ triple platinum record tells me there were definitely other obsessed fans like myself.
You may ask, why am I reminiscing about that insanely awkward stage of our lives? Aside from taking us all back to a simpler time, this flashback is more than warranted. Sugar Ray has recently dropped a spanking-new album titled “Music for Cougars.” The title isn’t the only amazing part of this new gem. After six horrible Sugar Ray-less years they are back with music that evokes what made them famous.
To promote the release of their new album the group has begun a US tour and thankfully is making a stop in our lovely home, San Francisco. They’ll be trekking to our neck of the woods September 15th where they’ll be playing The Regency Ballroom at 7pm.
