At the Drive In and Refused to reunite at Coachella

I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand I find reunion shows stupid and a vain attempt to capture the magic that has long since gone. On the other hand sweet holy hell this are two of the greatest bands of all time and I would probably kick myself forever if I didn't witness it.

my lady brought this up as a subject over dinner tonight...

 

my response was "whatever"... they were good at some point though. probably still are... just not as enthused as i was 10 years ago.

i think its cool.

refused 'this just might be the truth' was one of my first hardcore albums and i never got the chance to see them.

 

will i go to coachella? absolutely not. i hate fests and i hate 'music people.'

but i would be super amped if either band does a full tour.

My thoughts exactly, fist. Festivals suck in general for live shows, being surrounded by hipsters who knew nothing about these bands the first time around in the sweltering desert heat would just be awful. Hopefully this leads to some kind of tour and they don't just stick to the festival circuit.

Wow for once I'm not the only jaded asshole... Fuck fests. Music sounds like shit and if ur not side by side with some toy hipster it's a smelly crust bag white with dreads...

Best I can hope for is both sets get good quality leaks...

ATDI won't do a tour though, they would just play songs and tour as Mars Volta...

I guess Refused has been asked to play for a few years now and basically said its not worth it to them unless the price is right. So Im kinda wondering how much they will make. lol.

One of the things they said about this time around is wanting to do The Shape of Punk to Come "justice"

only thing i dont like about fests is the $ sometimes, other than that i dont understand the hatred for fests. i hate most people around me whether im at a small show or a fest. every fest i've been to the music sounds fine.

 

and i'd much rather have this...

i can listen to both bands, but never really cared about either.

I bet AtDI will do an ATP, at least I hope they will. I'd happily go see them again, they were rad live.

 

As for reunions, they usually smack of money grabbing desperation but it's never stopped me going.
