Crooked Fingers playing shows (Archers of Loaf too)
As The Vine pointed out...
"US Indie rock legends Archers of Loaf played a secret reunion show in their hometown of Chapel Hill [on January 15th].
The band broke a thirteen year silence on [that] Saturday evening, by performing an unannounced support slot for local band the Love Language. According to reports on twitter and the Merge Records forum, the original Archers of Loaf lineup - Eric Bachman, Matt Gentling, Mark Price and Eric Johnson - played a 12-song set at the Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill. No word yet of whether the reunion is permanent, though..."
...though Archers of Loaf have already announced another show - May at the Sasquatch Festival. Stay tuned for more announcements.
In the meantime frontman Eric Bachman is heading back out on the road with/as Crooked Fingers for a handful of shows including The Bell House in Brooklyn tonight/Saturday (2/19) with Neckbeard Telecaster. All dates and videos and the setlist from the January reunion, below...
