Juliana Hatfield, Evan Dando to share the stage in New York
"In the past when I worked with Evan it was always in a strictly auxiliary capacity -- backup singing, bass playing -- but now that we will be on equal footing I think we could do a lot of damage," Hatfield said of the pairing. "I've always thought that Evan was an underrated songwriter.... His good looks and anti establishment attitude have overshadowed his skills."
Hatfield formerly fronted indie bands Blake Babies and Some Girls, but is best known for her solo work. Dando is the frontman for The Lemonheads, the Gen X alternative rock band that reached its biggest success in the mid 90s.
While Hatfield and Dando have never officially belonged to the same band, they have frequently collaborated over the years, often appearing on each other's albums.
"Juliana and I first met and started playing music together when we were 19," added Dando. "Since then, Juliana has only gotten better and better. Now it's like playing with someone I'm a huge fan of and totally revere."
A Boston show is a possibility as well, according a press release.
