More Lineup Announcements For The Touch And Go 25th Anniversary Celebration At The 10th Annual Hideout Block Party
OK, can you keep a secret? We just found out about more bands playing the Touch and Go 25th Anniversary Celebration. The first? Arcwelder. They never come around any more, so here’s your chance. Xerxes, Pull, Everest… they’ll be pulling songs from all the classics. It will be awesome.
But that’s not all. Get a load of this: Big Black is gonna play a couple songs. For real. Big Black. Now, they’re not playing a full set or anything… just a couple songs, but who cares how many they play? This is Big Black, playing live, for the first time in nearly 20 years! It’s the old school line-up: Albini, Durango, Pezzati. And, believe it or not, they’re not even the 25th band. There are still more surprises to come, so stay tuned.
