The Oblivians will be playing the next free Scion Garage show at Knitting Factory on Thursday, July 1st. The garage rock band has reunited sporadically since breaking up in 1998 - Vice writes that this show marks their "return to NYC for the first time in 13 years." Opening the show will be Andre Ethier, the Deadly Snakes member, not the LA Dodgers outfielder (Vice says other Deadly Snakes members are also in his band). RSVP for free entry.
The Oblivians, who also have an Ohio show coming up, reunited in 2009 to tour with the Gories, who also have NYC reunion shows coming up, set for July 29-31.
Reigning Sound, the band fronted by Oblivians' Greg Cartwright, have tour dates that include a June 19th show at Southpaw and a June 20th show at Maxwell's.
The last free Scion Garage show was on May 27th with Cheap Time and Bad Sports. Flyer for the upcoming Knitting Factory show, and some videos, below...
