Back before he hosted The Daily Show, Jon Stewart had a really great talk show on MTV during the mid 90’s. His brand of humor was spot on for the times and one of the best parts of his show was the musical guests he’d have on. One of the most memorable ones that I remember was when Sunny Day Real Estate was on and performed “Seven” from their outstanding debut album, Diary. And now in 2022, it’s been announced, well it will be shortly, that Sunny Day Real Estate will be out on the road again. No word on if Nate Mendel will be joining Jeremy Enigk, Dan Hoerner and William Goldsmith on tour.
Sunny Day Real Estate- Seven (Live On The Jon Stewart Show):
The Jon Stewart Show back in the mid 90’s on MTV was one of the best late night shows. The humor on the show was hilarious and then the musical guests were ground breaking. The 90’s for music guests on TV had so many memorable performances. One of the ones I remember fondly was when Quicksand performed “Thorn In My Side” & “Brown Gargantuan”(though incomplete). The movie Empire Records turned me onto Quicksand and from that point I was hooked. This performance has so much energy permeating that you’ll probably find yourself bobbing your head or breaking out into a one person mosh pit!
