Very excited to see one of my oldest favorite bands, GOSPEL, reunited tonight at Union Pool. - [TheUnknownGlow]After three years away from the stage, and in front of a beyond sold-out crowd at Union Pool, Gospel made their triumphant return with the always unhinged noise punks Drunkdriver and galloping Tournament.
Though the band has been away from the stage a bit, they recently showed their hand with respect to new material... another show/record/tour? Possibly. More details to come, we'll keep you posted.
Drunkdriver has a ton of interesting shows in their near future as they prep to release their self-titled LP on Load Records. Look for the band at the WFMU/Aquarius Records, Load, and Parts Unknown shows at SXSW 2010. Before that, the band will play
with Iron Age at Union Pool on 2/16 and intersect with another SXSW showcasing artist in NYC when they team up with Riot Season's Todd at Cake Shop on March 14th. The band is also scheduled to meet up with everyone's favorite massholes, Mind Eraser, at Death By Audio on June 9th.
