This is a past event.

Goo Goo Dolls/Phillip Phillips

Alt-rockers Goo Goo Dolls didn’t always have such a radio friendly sound. When the band first formed in Buffalo in 1986, its music sounded harsher, perhaps reflecting the city band members called home. Eventually, the band would embrace a more melodic sound and go to sell truckloads of albums in the '90s when it delivered radio 14 Top 10 radio hits, including "Name," "Slide" and "Iris." Its latest effort, Boxes, finds the band collaborating a bit more on the songwriting. Featuring Rzeznik’s raspy vocals and a subdued guitar riff that sounds a bit like something the Edge might play, the first track, “Over and Over,” includes the phrase “turn it up” in the refrain, setting the tone for the disc, which puts an emphasis on uptempo songs rather than ballads. Expect that to be the case at tonight's show too. (Jeff Niesel)
