The current wave of ’90s nostalgia has reached its crest — everyone is wearing flannel, “Beavis and Butthead” is on the air again, and, most importantly, Fiona Apple is back.
The Grammy award winner, who is perhaps the angstiest icon from America’s angstiest decade, will take the stage at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 23.
Apple, who made the most memorable music video from when you were in high school (yeah that one), is touring in support of her first album in seven years titled, “The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do.”
Unlike ’90s peers Sarah McLachlan and Alanis Morissette, the 34-year-old songwriter did not embark on a poorly executed festival revival or see her musical pursuits fade in prominence after playing god in a movie. Nor was she ever Canadian.
Instead, the “Criminal” crooner followed up her debut “Tidal” with two less commercially successful records released in 1999 and 2005.
Her dedicated fans have eagerly anticipated an Apple revival, while Brooklyn’s other ’90s revivalists have been using the show as an excuse to dust off their CD players, throw on their JNCO jeans, and reminisce on how they were too cool for prom anyway.
Fiona Apple at Music Hall of Williamsburg [66 N. Sixth St. between Wythe Avenue and Kent Avenue, Williamsburg (718) 486-5400] March 23, 8 pm. $40. For tickets, www.ticket
