Tonight @ the Rave - 8 p.m.
Sister Hazel scored one of the most amiable hits of 1997 with “All for You,” a jangly roots-pop sing-along that lit up adult alternative stations but marked the band as another 1990s one-hit wonder (at least among listeners who correctly attribute that one hit to them—to this day many listeners understandably assume that Blues Traveler recorded the song). Sister Hazel, who return to the Rave tonight for an 8 p.m. show, have changed remarkably little over the past decade—they still sound a lot like Blues Traveler, with a dash of Counting Crows—but although they’ve released their recent albums to diminishing sales and interest, they’ve remained an enduring touring institution. This month singer Ken Block also released his first solo album, Drift.
