Local musicians celebrate ’90s music

 A good chunk of the Lethbridge music community relived their youth by a freewheeling night of Big shiny 90s covers at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, June 24.

I arrived during one of many instrument switches as Jolene Draper took the stage with bassist Steve Martin, Quint Viskup and Chris Lipinski, who played the Goo Dolls’s “Iris.” A who’s who of Lethbridge’s scene was on stage including Silvana Campus, Mickey Hayward and many more, just to name a few of them.

Tyson Wiebe only had a couple of days to pull the event together and organize who would be playing what instrument on what song, so it was impressive just because of that. They brought back a lot of memories good and bad played a lot of ’90s music good and bad. They covered both obscure as as well as overplayed ”90s hits like the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Californication” to long forgotten one hit wonders like Semisonic’s “Closing Time,” which aptly drew the show to a close.

Wiebe returned to lead  the band through Blink 182s “What’s my Age Again.” which was the last song before “Closing Time.”
