    Aren't the Spin Doctors starting to tour again? They're either playing soon or played recently in Phila, PA.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    They need to wait about 5 more years before doing so. They really cemented their rep as a "poser hippie band" several years back, which is too bad, really, because they actually made some decent music and they were really one of the main pioneers instrumental in reviving the jam scene in the late 80s & early 90s (along with Phish & Blues Traveler).

    At this point, they'd be lucky to fill a small club.

    It was a small club actually. I think it holds about 500 people or so. I don't even know why I paid any attention to the Spin Doctors other than I saw the listing in the local paper and thought "Where've they been?"
