Though Ted Leo is currently on the road with Ted Leo & The Pharmacists (they played The Champ in Leoyne, PA that night), the rest of Citizens Arrest (cXa) played their first reunion show on Saturday (12/4) as a special guest at Distort NY 2010 in Garden City, NY. cXa’s appearance was unannounced at the Long Island show, which also featured performances from Capital, No Tolerance, The Men, Nomos, and Concrete Cross.
Ted Leo didn’t play with Citizens Arrest Saturday, and he didn’t play with Yo La Tengo this Hanukkah either. However, he will join his current project, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, at Terminal 5 with The New Pornographers tonight (12/6). Tickets are still available.
Citizens Arrest (with Ted Leo) will play the sold-out Knitting Factory on 12/17 with Mind Eraser and Asshole Parade. cXa also play Kungfu Necktie in Philly one night later.
