Hanson, The State Theatre, 220 N. Washington St., Falls Church, Tonight, Thursday, May 1, 7:30 p.m.

It was 11 years ago when three young boys belted out one of the cheeriest songs of the era, “Mmmbop!,” sweeping the nation’s airwaves and putting a little pep in everyone’s step. It was such an endearing ditty that even the most jaundiced cynic could sincerely poo-poo it. Well, since then those boys, the brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zack Hanson, have never rivaled that achievement from the standpoint of universal popularity. But they’ve held together, growing their music with themselves, preferring the nurturing of support from uber-loyal young fans who’ve grown up with them to the usual trappings of celebrity and fame. They’re now, and probably will be for a long time, seasoned and accomplished musicians performing original work together. Moreover, they’re using their popularity to raise money for the African relief, as they will when they lead fans in a walk around Falls Church from the State Theatre at 3 p.m. today. Join them if you can.
