Pop Rocks! Matthew Sweet Comes to PlayNetwork!

We’re pretty stoked to have power-pop rocker Mathew Sweet as our guest this Monday, August 22nd for our next PlayLive series event!

The hard working veteran is gearing up for the release of his new album “‘Modern Art” slated to drop September 28th  (check out the debut song “She Walks the Night” here), and is about to tour in support of the 20th Anniversary of the release of his 1991 album “Girlfriend”. You can see tour dates on his website: www.matthewsweet.com and follow him on Twitter.

Sweet’s career since the mid-80’s has given us over 15 commercial album releases, and includes collaboration with the likes of Michael Stipe, Susanna Hoffs, and Pete Droge,  but is probably best known for the title track to his album “Girlfriend”.

He’s also lent his talents to TV and film (remember when he was the bassist for Ming Tea from the first Austin Powers movie?)
