Lilys repressing ‘Eccsame The Photon Band’ on vinyl; Brooklyn shows are this weekend
by Bill Pearis
Kurt Heasley has reactivated Lilys for two special Brooklyn shows this weekend at Baby's All Right which will focus on the band's early-'90s dreampop material. With help former Lily Don Devore (who's currently of Sick Feeling), the assembled band includes members of MGMT, Ducktails, The Sea & Cake and we hear there might be some surprise guests, too. Tonight's late show at Baby's is sold out, but you can still get tickets to Sunday's show (10/11). Says Heasley of this weekend, "We are giving our best to life, hopefully leaving this place a little more beautiful."
In other news, Lilys' classic (ahead of its time, really) 1994 album Eccsame The Photon Band is getting a vinyl reissue via Frontier Records. It's out October 30 (pre-orders are available) but will be at the merch table this weekend for those going to these shows. You can stream the album below.
