Some folks like blood and gore, but some they want a little more… Save your appetites and rock your sweet tooth as 99.3 The Fox’s ‘Nineties At Noon” presents ROCK.IT BOY’S SEX & CANDY HALLOWEEN TREAT featuring MARCY PLAYGROUND in concert on Saturday, October 31st at The Red Room on Richards Street in Vancouver.  Tickets are on sale this Saturday for $22.50 (plus Service Charges) at all Ticketmaster outlets. A highly original and melodic modern rock band MARCY PLAYGROUND, led by songwriter and front man John Wozniak, exploded onto the scene back in 1997 with the insanely irresistible hit single ‘Sex And Candy‘, a song that notched fifteen consecutive weeks at number one on Billboard U.S. Modern Rock tracks chart and a self-titled debut album that went on to sell 1.7 million copies.  One minute they were an ‘underground alternative band’ and next thing they were mainstream, rocking every party in America. They followed that up with Shapeshifter (1999) and MP3 (2004), two finely crafted albums filled with songs like “Its Saturday,” “Deadly Handsome Man” and “Punk Rock Superstar” that have won them respect and a lot of long term fans.  It has been five years since the last album but MARCY PLAYGROUND is back with a collection of new songs on their fourth album Leaving wonderland…in a fit of rage that takes the listener on a musical and emotional roller coaster ride from semi-acoustic confessional secrets to careless and quirky hard rock. As a live act MARCY PLAYGROUND is tireless, and continues to demonstrate just how much variety you can get from a three-piece band.
