Nine Days plays their No. 1 hit, "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" in the music video for the 2000 song. As the band, formed on Long Island, prepared to perform Friday at 8 p.m. at the YMCA Boulton Center in Bay Shore, singer and guitarist John Hampson said, "It's great that we're part of pop culture with 'Story of a Girl.' But this band came from a different place. We're hoping to change the perception of what Nine Days is. I want the music to do all of the talking." Credit: Nine Days / VEVO
