Smash Mouth is playing a free concert Saturday in Sparks, Nevada.
Smash Mouth bassist Paul De Lisle says it doesn’t matter if the band is playing a festival, a club or even a free show at an outdoor mall, as it will Saturday night at Legends at Sparks Marina.
“We’ve played in the weirdest places and the weirdest situations,” De Lisle said. “It honestly doesn’t matter to us, man. If we’re gigging, we’re happy. “We approach every show the same way.”

Somewhere in the middle of Wednesday’s Mötley Crüe concert at the Reno Events Center I realized that a Crüe show isn’t really about the music. Not only does the band sound vastly superior on CD, but with a recording one is able to close his or her eyes and imagine all this objectifying of women and shouting at the devil is the brainchild of angst-ridden 20-somethings rather than the middle-aged rockers the band has become.
But I digress. A Crüe concert today is clearly about “the experience.” So rather than bother with the traditional review, I decided to simply provide observations from the Crüe experience.
If Hinder wants to keep opening for classic rock bands, it needs to cultivate at least three more hit songs.
When bass and drums are played loudly enough, they might actually kickstart your heart.
