’90s Forever: Watch the Juliana Hatfield Three perform live for the first time in 20 years


Like pretty much everywhere else these days, the dream of the ’90s was alive and well at tonight’s 15th annual Hot Stove Cool Music charity concert at the Paradise Rock Club. Kay Hanley led a nearly-intact Letters To Cleo for a few songs, Tanya Donelly and Gail Greenwood ripped through some Belly classics, and the reunited Juliana Hatfield Three performed their first live set in 20 years.

The trio of Hatfield, bassist Dean Fisher and drummer Todd Phillips hit the Paradise Rock Club stage around midnight, gliding through a four-song set that included Become What You Are staples “Supermodel,” “My Sister,” and album closer “I Got No Idols,” as well as new single “If I Could.”

We’ll get a fuller, more-rounded out set February 27 when the ‘Three play the Sinclair in Cambridge, but in the meantime, check out fast-action video of their final song this evening, “I Got No Idols,” below.


The band’s new record, Whatever, My Love, is out February 17.

And in case you’re wondering why we didn’t record “My Sister,” we’ll just blame that on technical issues. But here’s Hanley recording a quick snippet of the 1993 hit during the band’s soundcheck.
