Mayfest announces Smash Mouth, finally

    Holy Olsen twins, it looks like the '90s are coming back to town.  

    Mayfest has officially announced that Smash Mouth will be joining the Dillo Day 2013 lineup. This comes almost three months after the band's Facebook page leaked that they would be coming to Evanston.

    Smash Mouth will be begin playing at 4:30 p.m. for the afternoon rock set and will run until approximately 5:30 p.m. on June 1. The act was sponsored in part by Cricket Wireless. 

    Jeremy Shpizner, Communication senior and Mayfest co-chair wrote in a press release, "“A huge part of planning Dillo Day is collaborating within our board to find an artist that is truly going to excite and engage the largest percentage of our community. We are confident that not only is Smash Mouth going to put on a performance that will pump up the student body, but also that through their mass appeal and prominence in everybody's formative years they will unite a large portion of the campus to come jam out on the lakefill."

    Smash Mouth joins Danny Brown, Walk the Moon and Lunice for this year's list of performances. With less than one week until Dillo Day, this year's headliner has yet to be announced.
