At first listen, The Smithereens sound like a group that's fronted by a bunch of young 20-year-olds who spend their time drinking beer and ogling girls at the local beach or swimming hole. This is true, or at least it was. The New Jersey based power pop group was formed in 1980 when all the band's members were youngsters, but as time has worn on, the musicians have aged and are no longer the young bucks that they once were. Their old(er) age hasn't stopped them from rocking - the group is in top shape and a Smithereens concert is a sure fire nostalgic trip that's undoubtedly fun.
