The Wonder Yeahs Review
The 90s was a great decade, Will Smith was cool, Super Nintendos were all the ‘Streets Of Rage’ and Joss Whedon gave us Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The music wasn’t half bad either and the Wonder Yeahs is here to remind us that kitsch can be cool, or at least, kitsch was cool.
It was a time when the baggier your jeans were, the better, and although it’s a shame 90s fashion isn’t an entrance requisite (just imagine) it’s obvious everyone here loves the pop-punk of Weezer as much as the G-funk of Dre. The young but not student-centric crowd gets down like our Noughties’ economy, reveling in the camp as much as the classic as the DJs drop Ace Of Bass after The Fugees.
Drop your navel-gazing taste at the door and delight in a night that continually has you yelling, “Oh, I used to love this tune!”
