Adam Enright and Aaron Fuksa return to the Joe’s Pub stage in the East Village as Dana and Deena, a.k.a. 2Scoops, a group that’s had countless breakups since its ’90s heyday. In honor of the pair’s latest reunion, we asked them to sound off on some of the dopest jams (and gay-beloved classics) of the (Bill) Clinton era.
