Fountains of Wayne
Tonight @ Summerfest Rock Stage, Summerfest, 10 p.m.
Released nearly a decade ago, New York pop-rock group Fountains of Wayne's sarcastically groovy 2003 full-length album, Welcome Interstate Managers, brought them into the limelight with their best-known hit, the MILF anthem “Stacy's Mom.” The disproportionate success of that track has unfairly pigeonholed the band as one-hit wonders, a reputation that slights the wonderful power-pop albums they've made since. Their latest is last year's Brit-pop informed Sky Full of Holes, another lighthearted set of cheeky lyrics and quirky romance stories.
