I frankly haven’t thought of Wheatus since their song “Teenage Dirtbag” unexpectedly tore up charts around the world ten years ago. But it seems that despite line-up changes, lawsuits, intellectual property theft, interstate art heist investigations, and a lack of any discernible hit since the New York indie rock act are still kicking on.
And strangely enough, they’re bringing their “Still a Teenage Dirtbag” tour to Australia. They’ve even scored a slot at Newcastle’s Fat as Butter Festival! When they play here you’ll get to hear that big hit and god knows what else, but that’s the main thing right?
Any surprise that the venues are small, and that tickets for the headlining shows cost just $35?
