Gin Blossoms are headed to Bogart’s on Sunday, February 17th! They are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the multi-platinum album breakthrough album New Miserable Experience by performing it in its entirety along with other classics.
Having dominated radio and MTV playlists for most of the 90s with their fusion of pop, melodic rock, folk and country elements, Gin Blossoms remain a rare breed that continues to create, craft and perform for audiences ever rapt by their glorious catalog of material as they enter their third decade of making music.
The band has sold over 10 million records collectively, and in 2017 were inducted into the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame. Gin Blossoms have earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the busiest touring acts in the world, playing close to 150 shows a year. And as Wilson notes, “We’re entertaining and we have chops, but it really comes down to the songs. The reason we’re still here is that we have good songs. When young musicians ask me for advice, what’s the best thing to do to further my career, I always say, ‘Write good songs.’ It always comes down to that.”
