Juliana Hatfield Three

Thursday, September 26  - Doors 7pm - $30 adv. - All Ages 

The Juliana Hatfield Three will hit the road this fall to celebrate the 30th (ish) anniversary of their debut album Become What You Are. The trio will play the album in its entirety along with other songs from their catalog.

The Juliana Hatfield Three - singer/songwriter/guitarist Juliana Hatfield, drummer Todd Philips, and bassist Dean Fisher - released Become What You Are in August 1993 on Mammoth Records. Produced by Scott Litt (R.E.M.), the album found early success with the debut single "My Sister." Despite the song's title, Juliana did not have a sister, leading many to speculate about the inspiration for the song. "My Sister" reached #1 on the Billboard "Modern Rock" charts with an accompanying video, directed by Phil Morrison (Junebug), played on MTV.

The album's third single "Spin The Bottle" (1994) was featured on the soundtrack to the Ben Stiller-directed film Reality Bites starring Winona Ryder, and Ethan Hawke. In the music video, directed by Stiller, a group including Juliana Hatfield, Todd Philips, Dean Fisher, Ethan Hawke, and Tanya Donelly (Belly) play a game of spin the bottle while scenes from the film project behind them. Propelled by the success of the film and soundtrack, "Spin The Bottle" peaked at #39 on the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream charts.

Following a 20 year hiatus, the Juliana Hatfield Three reformed in 2014 and released their critically acclaimed sophomore album Whatever, My Love in 2015 on American Laundromat Records followed by a U.S. tour. Both Stereogum and Consequence named it "one of the most anticipated albums of 2015".
