By now, surely you’ve been wooed, wowed, and entirely bowled-over by Live, the 2xLP on Chunklet from mighty and legendary Athens quartet PYLON released on July 25th. If this is hitting you flat, it’s not cause you’re dumb (actually…you might be, but that’s a topic for another time)…I mean just check out what everyone, everywhere (literally!) has been saying from NPR, Atlanta Constitution-Journal, Flagpole, Atlanta Magazine, Blurt, Eldrege ATL, Dusted, Vinyl District, Impose, Aquarium Drunkard, Dangerous Minds, Stereogum, Spin, Immerisve Atlanta, All Music, Bandcamp, Creative Loafing, to the braintrust over at Pitchfork (8.0 review!) – it’s pretty overwhelming for a band that has not existed in over 30 years!
But this is no missive to digest your ineptitude or aptitude (dude)! There’s something truly amazing happening in September. Though founding guitarist Randy Bewely has passed away, Pylon‘s very own Vanessa Briscoe Hay will front a live ensemble, playing the following cities as the PYLON RE-ENACTMENT SOCIETY, with tour mates, Dressy Bessy:
09/21 – Richmond, VA @ Strange Matter
09/22 – Arlington, VA @ Iota
09/23 – Brooklyn, NY @ Shea Stadium
09/24 – NYC @ WFMU/Monty Hall
09/25 – Philadelphia, PA @ Johnny Brenda’s
Consider yourselfs lucky residents of Richmond, Arlington, Brooklyn & Philadelphia. Very lucky. Who’s got dibs on the passenger seat? You’re driving RIGHT? Let me know when you’re picking us up.
