Third Eye Blind, the San Francisco pop-rock band who in 1997 became famous for the song "Semi-Charmed Life" (otherwise known as the song with the chorus that goes doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo) as well as a couple other '90s alt-rock tracks whose lyrics you might know whether you want to or not, is doing just fine. I know that singer Stephan Jenkins has a lovely house in Pac Heights and many friends, despite having made enemies with at least a few locals in the music industry. Prior to the release of the band's fifth studio album, 2015's Dopamine, they'd sold roughly 12 million records worldwide. And at 51, Jenkins is still considered a sex symbol...at least by VICE writers.
But sometimes, after five records and 20 years of fame, even bands like Third Eye Blind want -- well, something else?
That's likely why they've spent the past week crafting an internet presence for a fake British band called The Dazzleships, which is actually just Third Eye Blind, possibly playing David Bowie covers, which according to tipsters is a thing that will be happening at The Chapel tonight, Friday, Feb. 5, at 9 pm.
