TONIGHT: Total Slacker headlines Deli/Pianos CMJ show

If you're old enough to remember the '90s, you probably remember it as mostly being about VHS tapes, crystal pepsi and long-lasting flannel. And that's exactly how Total Slacker remembers it too, commemorating the twilight hours of the 20th century with a set filled with odes to "Full House" and "Jurassic Park." It all might be a joke, if it weren't for how well they make it all sound. The Brooklyn trio may nod to early Weezer with their loose and dirty grunge, but singer/songwriter Tucker Rountree bakes his own kind of fuzzy bud into his Fender, keeping the party moving way past Y2K. The band's just finished putting the final touches on the followup to their 2011 debut "Thrashin," and are set to premiere it at CMJ. - Check out an old video below.
