The year 1994 was a great year for me. I was a high school senior, well into my senior slide. I would be graduating in June and heading off to enjoy my last summer of grade school.
In February of the same year, a little movie by the name of Reality Bites was released. You might have heard of this movie by now; it starred Ben Stiller, Ethan Hawke, and a young Winona Ryder. You may also remember the soundtrack to Reality Bites included the platinum-selling No.1 hit song “Stay (I Missed You)” by Lisa Loeb.
Over the past decade, Lisa Loeb has emerged as an acclaimed children’s author and songwriter, founder of a nonprofit sending kids to summer camp, and an eyewear fashion trend-setter.
The Los Angeles based mother of two is well known to parents and kids for her albums Catch the Moon (with Elizabeth Mitchell) and Camp Lisa (with sales benefiting the Camp Lisa Foundation). She published her second picture book-CD for Sterling Children’s Books: Lisa Loeb’s Songs for Movin’ and Shakin’, in 2013.
Also in 2013, she released No Fairy Tale which is her first rock album in 8 years. The album, which was co-produced by New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert and Lisa herself, features Loeb’s brand of quirky lyrics and rollicking guitar licks.
Now, 20 years after the success of Reality Bites, Lisa Loeb is planning to hit the road on a multi-city tour this spring, and I’ve got her tour dates detailed below.
The tour dates include:
April 12 – Hockaday School fund-raiser, Dallas, TX (private event)
April 23 – The Redstone Room, Davenport, IA
April 24 – Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts, Cedar Falls, IA (all ages)
April 25 – Bloomington Center for the Arts, Bloomington, IN (all ages)

I may be 20 years older now, but while attending one of her shows this spring I’m gonna feel 18 all over again.
