Don’t lie – you swooned over the Goo Goo Dolls in the dark days of the mid-1990's. Listlessly wandering through a strip mall or patrolling some random public space, everyone ate up their mainstream reinterpretation of the Replacement. Shooting into stardom with sensitive singles like “Iris” and “Slide,” the Goo Goo Dolls cemented a place for themselves on throwback playlists everywhere, pigeonholed somewhere between the post-grunge charm of the Gin Blossoms and Matchbox Twenty’s textbook sappiness. Almost two decades after the release of their primordial Boy Named Goo, the band continues to crank out digestible works of adult alternative rock. The prolific rockers dropped Boxes, their eleventh studio album this year, assuring fans that their favorite acoustic power ballads aren't going anywhere. 8pm, $54, Aztec Theater, 104 N. Saint Mary’s St.
