Critic’s Pick – Marcy Playground

Marcy Playground

By Matt Clevenger

Best-known for their provocative 1997 hit “Sex and Candy,” alternative rockers Marcy Playground will make a rare live appearance at McGuffy’s House of Rock this Saturday, Jan. 8.  Formed in 1995 by lead singer/songwriter John Wozniak, the group has survived several line-up changes over the years, releasing a series of five successful studio albums. Their biggest single, “Sex and Candy,” spent a record-setting 15 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Track chart, and their self-titled debut album sold over 1.7 million copies. Their latest release, 2010’s “Indaba Remixes from Wonderland,” is also unique, featuring old Marcy Playground songs remixed and submitted by fans. The fans whose tracks were included will also get a share of the album’s royalties for their contributions. Marcy Playground will appear Saturday, Jan. 8 at McGuffy’s House of Rock, with opening acts One Second, Left Hand Hold and Army of Infants. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 the day of the show. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m. More information can be found online at www.marcyplayground.com or www.mcguffys.net.
