The Lemonheads' Evan Dando

Lemonheads mastermind Evan Dando will embark on a five-week, coast-to-coast solo tour of the U.S. early next year, his second American trek in less than a year in support of Varshons, the band’s recently released covers album.

Leaving his band back home this time, Dando will hit the road beginning Jan. 29 in Hoboken, N.J., and continue on through a March 6 gig in New York City. In between, he’ll hit Philadelphia, Orlando, Chicago and Los Angeles, among other stops.

Last summer, Dando released the 11-track Varshons, produced by the Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes and featuring covers of songs by the likes of Leonard Cohen, Wire, Gram Parsons and G.G. Allin — plus that increasingly oft-covered, Linda Perry-penned Christina Aguilera hit “Beautiful.” He spent the fall touring Europe solo.
