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