The Gin Blossoms first claim to fame? They were named Best Rock Band in a Phoenix New Times reader's poll back in the late '80s. And after a quick rise to almost-stardom, the Gin Blossoms fumbled, stumbled, found their footing and soldiered on, becoming one very successful band throughout the following decade. With songs like "Hey Jealousy," "Found Out About You" and "Until I Fall Away," the group's place in great '90s pop rock is undeniably cemented—if only for their spot on the Empire Records soundtrack. Their breakup in 1997 was quiet, and, thankfully, rather quick—they reunited in 2002 and have kept a steady pace of recording and touring since. Catch them at the Coach House this week and relive those glory years of '90s radio.
