Friday To-Do: Sixpence None the Richer

SIXPENCE NONE THE RICHER
9 p.m. Juanita's. $20.

Pop fans will likely remember Sixpence None the Richer from the CCM group's huge hit "Kiss Me," which I thought was a Cardigans song for the longest time.

In 1999, the band had a hit with a cover of The La's "There She Goes," which put a contemporary sheen on the original's vintage production and Byrds-y jangle. In 2003, Sixpence struck adult contemporary gold again with a cover of the Crowded House hit "Don't Dream It's Over."

The core duo of Leigh Nash and Matt Slocum broke up in 2004, but reunited a few years later. "Lost in Transition," the band's sixth studio album, is due out next week.

The opening bands are Sleeperstar and Satellite.
