Relive Your Seventh Grade Semi-Charmed Life with a FREE Third Eye Blind Show

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

So remember seventh grade and the most awesome song on the radio and in the world at large was “Semi-Charmed Life” by Third Eye Blind, even though all the lyrics minus the chorus were basically unintelligible jibberish?  But that catchy, catchy hook, man!  And truth be told, “Jumper” and “How’s It Going to Be” weren’t too hard on the ears either.

Well, even though 3eb (as Wikipedia tells me is the band’s abbreviation) made some pretty good music in the ’90s, they kind of dropped off the radar since then, meaning they made sucky albums.  But on Thursday, 3eb will be in San Francisco as part of a Macy’s and Tommy Hilfiger-sponsored event, and there’s no way they would disappoint fans in the town of their humble beginnings by not playing their ’90s classic(s).

They’re slated to begin their FREE show in Union Square at 1pm (which I think will be worth it now that I know “doing crystal meth will lift you up until you break”), but if you’re either a huge Tommy Hilfiger OR 3eb fan, if you spend $75 worth of Hilfiger brand stuff at Macy’s, you’ll get to meet both on Level 3 at noon before the show.  Btw, it would be pretty cool to meet Mr. Hilfiger, so my tip would be keep an eye on that receipt and return your $75 worth of goodies later.  Macy’s has an awesome return policy.

FREE Third Eye Blind Show in Union Square Thursday, October 7, 1pm Union Square @ Powell & Geary

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
