Dream Syndicate's Steve Wynn To Perform Medicine Show At Special 25th Anniversary Concerts

(PR) Ronald Reagan makes a run at a second term as president, the Berlin Wall is still intact, Boy George tops the charts and has yet to spend a day in jail or collecting trash in lower Manhattan, MTV seems to be a fad that might just stick around, cell phones and the internet aren't much more than space-age rumors alongside jet-packs and time travel. Most of the more dire predictions in George Orwell's book haven't come true. Yet. And the Dream Syndicate releases its second album "Medicine Show."

Steve Wynn, former leader of the Dream Syndicate, and his current band the Miracle 3 will commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the release of "Medicine Show" with two shows in New York City and Los Angeles (see dates below) where they will play the classic album from start to finish for the first time. The Miracle 3—Steve's long-time band of Jason Victor, Dave Decastro and Linda Pitmon—did similar shows for "The Days of Wine and Roses" in 2001.

"I always loved this record and felt it has lived in the shadows of 'The Days of Wine and Roses,'" said Wynn. "So it will be nice to have a couple of nights to let it stand up on its own and see how it stands up to a quarter of a century."

Despite charting on the Billboard list of top LPs and topping the CMJ singles chart for 2 months, the album was met with mixed reviews in the US where the band's debut album "The Days of Wine and Roses" had been a critical sensation. Overseas it was a different story. "Medicine Show" received the highest accolades across Europe and the UK (the album made the London Guardian's "Top 40 Albums of the First 40 Years of Rock" list in the mid-90s), sowing the seeds for a career that has been strong for bandleader Steve Wynn to the present day

"''Medicine Show' is the weirdest, most idiosyncratic, nastiest, funniest and most revealing record the Dream Syndicate ever made," said Wynn in the liner notes from the record's 1991 reissue. "It's also my favorite."

Don't wait until 2034 to see this show.

June 27 Bell House Brooklyn, Ny
July 9 The Echo Los Angeles, Ca
