Chris Barron of the Spin DoctorS

October 8 | $20 Pre-Sale $25 At the Door

The zeitgeist is a moving target, and Chris Barron has always been a crack shot. The New York songwriter is no longer the debutant who set out on the circuit’s sharp end in 1988 with $100, a battered acoustic and a headful of the alt-rock anthems that would elevate Spin Doctors to global stardom. He’s a veteran approaching 50, living in a world changed beyond recognition, compelled to write the music that chronicles the here-and-now.

With 1991’s five-times-platinum Pocket Full of Kryptonite album, The Spin Doctors duly exploded, and while millions screamed those solid-gold choruses, there was more going on beneath the surface. Spend an intimate evening with Spin Doctors front man, Chris Barron, you won’t want to miss this 90’s nostalgia overload!
