Stars Of The ’90s Continue To Align For Shows, Meals, Fever Dreams Of Fans
I think we’ve made enough jokes about the many broken-up bands of yesteryear reuniting just in time to grab their last bit of pre-global-crash money for you to anticipate the punchline even before I get to the end of this sentence. So let’s just get to the meat of the post, shall we? News on reunion shows by Hum and Letters to Cleo, as well as some dudes hoping against hope that this year’s Coachella will bring Athens’ finest out into the desert heat, after the jump.
• Midwestern guitar-rock stalwarts Hum will play a New Year’s Eve show at the Double Door, to the delight of Time Out Chicago‘s Brent DiCrescenzo and a couple of brand managers for Cadillac.
• Kay Hanley will take time out from backing up Miley Cyrus to play a few shows with her old band, Letters to Cleo, and maybe if you ask nicely, she’ll perform a verse or two from the still utterly playable Josie And The Pussycats soundtrack.
• And finally, not that any performers have been announced yet, but Coachella ’09 will take place from April 17-19, with the country-tinged Stagecoach Festival taking over the Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif. Someone’s already started the ever-helpful “Neutral Milk Hotel for Coachella ’09” thread. I place the likelihood of that happening at about 1%, but you never know.
