Texas is the Reason, 2012 reunion (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Texas is the Reason

Texas is the Reason reunited again in 2012 for Revelation Records’ 25th anniversary and played shows at Irving Plaza, Music Hall of Williamsburg and Saint Vitus in NYC in addition to some touring. In May they announced “The Grand Finale”, an eight-date European tour that runs from 7/26 – 8/4. After that, they say, they’re done again. Assuming they’re telling the truth, that gives them about a week between when I’m writing this and when they leave for Europe to make a last minute announcement and do it one more time for NYC.

UPDATE: Texas is the Reason confirm ‘MX’ is in the works…
UPDATE 2: Texas is the Reason confirm Maxwell’s show!

In possibly related news, Hoboken club Maxwell’s, where Texas is the Reason played multiple times in the 90s, is sadly closing for good at the end of the month, but have been going out strong with shows by Titus Andronicus, Yo La Tengo, and many more. This weekend, the shows continue with two sold out shows on Sunday (7/21): Screaming Females & Nuclear Santa Claust (early) and Ted Leo & Shellshag (late). The Bongos will play the final show there, though details are scarce. There’s also a farewell block party.
