The Feelies To Bring Their Crazy Rhythms Back This Summer

Mar 20th, 2008 // 6 Comments


My post-Amanda-elimination sadness and the hairballs that Gawker Media’s servers have been horking up since lunchtime almost resulted in this very important news slipping through today’s news cycle: “After 15 years MIA, Bill Million has resurfaced and The Feelies have begun practicing together! Apparently they will play a few gigs in and around NJ over July 4 weekend, including a slot opening for Sonic Youth in Central Park!” Fun fact: After Million left the Jersey jangle-pop outfit in 1991, he went off to work at Walt Disney World. OK, that fact isn’t as fun as the idea of attending this summer’s shows, but still! [djearlybird / YouTube / MySpace]

    This is great news! Now if only they’d venture out to the West Coast so I could see any and all of Crazy Rhythms live….

    Thanks for the plug, but the true credit should go to WPRB legend Ken Katkin – it was his YahooGroups post that clued me in.

    If I may get all Comic Book Store Guy for a sec, technically I sent you the tip about this show. ;)

    @MTS: technically the aforementioned yahoogroup sent it to me first. your forward of it did help it reach my inbox quicker, though, because i filter all my lists to different folders.

    I saw Wake Ooloo at the Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge MA. They were amazing, but they cut their show off half-way through the set because the hipster* crowd wouldn’t stop chatting and were ignoring the band. Vaguely related note: when we saw Puffy AmiYumi on their American tour in 2002, my husband said that they were the best live band he’d seen since the Feelies. *Cambridge had hipsters long before hipsters were hip.
