Trying to rekindle their former "Miserable" mojo, Lit will play tonight at The Canyon in Agoura Hills. It's safe to assume the Fullerton-based band will play a few off their first new album in eight years, "The View From the Bottom." Their bottom and our bottom might be complete strangers, as once upon a time Lit was a platinum-selling band, signed to RCA and touring with the likes of The Offspring, No Doubt and Garbage.
Before their flame-on moment, the band began behind the Orange Curtain as Razzle, which became Stain. They've been Lit since 1996 and homeowners since the new millennium. Their album "A Place in the Sun" went platinum -- a metal beloved by label suits -- fueled in no small part by the success of singles "Miserable" and "My Own Worst Enemy." An appearance by Pamela Anderson in the video for "Miserable" made it memorable.
