    Haven't heard much of them since they did that video with Homestar. Would be pretty cool to see them, doubt they'll play though.

    That was at least two albums ago, maybe 3 ...not including their children's albums.

    People don't seem to "get" them much on the west coast. They don't tour much out here, but tour all over the northeast a couple times a year. Great band, but I haven't seen them in almost 20 years. They come to AZ very rarely, and it's usually to Tucson only.

    A girl I know told me they just played at UCLA the other day.

    They're putting out another record for kids, so I'm not sure why they would play Coachella. They played a kiddie show in Dallas on Halloween afternoon.

    They played UCLA in November, but it was the first time they had been in CA for several years. They used tour through every year, but once kids started coming into the picture and they started making most their money on commercials and TV shows and what not it slowed down. Their music has been pandering and phoned in for about a decade. I haven't seen them since '05, and it was good, but I've heard their shows haven't been the best the last few years (even though the set lists have been pretty strong). I would for sure watch them if they played Coachella, but I don't think it's all that likely, especially since they are playing two nights (two shows a night) at Largo in February. It would be unlikely that they would come back to CA so soon, even if only for one show. I'm frankly very surprised they are coming back after only three months.
