"Last night i got to see one of my favorite bands re-unite. I thought i had seen the last of HOT SNAKES back on June 1st 2005 when i saw them at their last ever London UK gig. Then i really thought I'd never see them again at their final NYC show on August 9th 2005 at the Bowery Ballroom.

I was teased last year when OBITS and NIGHT MARCHERS played a secret gig together in Park Slope Brooklyn thinking for sure they would have to do an encore together as HOT SNAKES but no avail. Then i got word that at the same gig in San Diego they did in fact re-unite as HOT SNAKES leaving me with suspicions they would one day play again.

And finally last night on December 1st 2011 it happened at the Bell House in Park Slope Brooklyn. Word's can not describe how incredible every aspect of this show was. From old friends to the most perfect guitar tones to a phenomenal set list. Hat's off to you HOT SNAKES... well done!" [Justin Scurti]

And they do it again tonight! (at Maxwell's). More pictures from last night (12/1), setlist included, below...

Here's to hoping they play at least one more NYC show. Cause I'm a fucking retard and missed this one.

Nice to see Dan Sartain play with a full band.

Hot Snakes, just go ahead and tour already. Or at least play Philly.

Wish I coulda gone.
Also, the Bell House might be the nicest venue in the NYC area.

Great shots! I really, REALLY hope they see fit to give us in the PacNW a taste. And put Unlisted and Ben Gurion back in the set

Best band best show best time and maxwells was just as good if not better

my only qualm with the Maxwells show is that Rye didn't play anything old. was really hoping they'd at least dig up "the higher the hair..." since i know i'm not hearing "a new sheriff in town" anytime soon again.

Hot Snakes were perfect.
even if they didn't satisfy my desire to hear them play/cover (kind of) 'luau'

But then again, maaaaybe a Jehu tour would be nice next? please and thank you.

hot snakes tour please.

best shows of the year. Maxwells was better in my opinion. the sound at bell house wasn't quite right.

dan sartain is probably the most underrated purveyor of RnR in america.
