...When can we expect some more dates, and possibly an NYC date?

...As far as touring goes, sure, we wanna be everywhere, but one thing that we're pretty united on is that if this starts to be a drag, we don't want to do it. - [Jonah Matranga of Far in an interview from earlier this year

I guess it hasn't been a drag. Far, who have already been playing shows elsewhere in the world, has scheduled their first reunion date in NYC, and it will take place at Bowery Ballroom on 10/25 with Thursday with Midnight Masses . Tickets go on sale Friday 8/28 at noon and AmEx presale on Wed 8/26. The Thursday date is in addition to their previously announced tour and 9/20 show at Bowery Ballroom with Fall of Troy, Young Widows, and Moving Mountains. Tickets are still available for that.

The NYC Far reunion show billing is not too surprising. Jonah and Thursday have a long history including the 2002 Onelinedrawing tour that included an October show at Irving Plaza. Jonah also contributed backup vocals to Thursday's 2003 album War All the Time. In 2008, Jonah performed Far's "Mother Mary" with Thursday at Hellfest. Video of that below.

Far has a record in the works for Vagrant. Full Thursday dates are below...

Thursday is the gayest (is that a word?) crap I've ever heard.

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2009 11:09 PM

gayest is indeed a word
at least in the gay world it is

Instead of pairing two bands I very much like (Fall of Troy and Far) together, separately, with Thursday, how's about they just drop the dead weight and play one show?

Wednesday is where it is at! At least for today. Tomorrow Thursday will have its day!
