Girlfriend

by Todd Almond & Matthew Sweet

April 17 – June 10, 2018

Ark

Girlfriend is a vibrant and tender coming of age musical duet from when flannel was the height of fashion and mix tapes were the language of love.

It’s 1993 in small-town Nebraska during the summer between high school and whatever comes next. College-bound jock Mike and self-assured but aimless Will find themselves drawn to each other. Their rush of first-time love, full of excitement, confusion and passion, is captured by the power-pop precision and frayed guitar emotion of Matthew Sweet’s alternative rock album “Girlfriend.”


“A rock ‘n’ roll valentine that delivers subtle wisdom with an exhilarating kick.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
