"I'm just happy that Radish never became as big as Silverchair and some of those other teen bands," Kweller says. "I got to bypass that. And if you never heard of us, I wouldn't recommend going back and checking us out now. It was all kind of weird. But then, that's my journey. Nothing about my life has been normal. I've learned to accept that. The important thing is that it got me to the point where I am now, where people are starting to take me seriously, not because of my age, but because of my music."
Ben Kweller performs with My Morning Jacket, Little T and One Track Mike at Chain Reaction, 1652 W. Lincoln Ave., Anaheim, (714) 635-6067. Wed., 7:30 p.m. $8. All ages.
