AP.net Reports In: At the Drive In's First Reunion Show

Posted by: Adam Pfleider (04/10/12)
Last night I was lucky enough to attend At the Drive In's first show in eleven years. You can head to the replies to see the band's set list. I have mixed emotions about the whole thing, but rest assured, the set was quite flawless. I'll have a better rundown tomorrow. For now...we toast.

Holy shit that set list made me so god damn jealous. Metronome, Napoleon Solo, Arcarsenal, Enfilade, and of course One Armed Scissor!!!!

Would have liked to see Ursa Minor and Proxima Centauri too.
Im going to be so pissed if they do not do a nationwide tour or atleast a show here on the East coast. If they dont, they should have said that from the beginning so then I could have actually went to one of these festivals. Will be so pissed if I miss this reunion

disappointed about that, but no screaming either. i saw a band far removed from what they did as kids play their music better than when they made it. it was awesome. it was punk rock. i loved it.

"Quarantined" was the best song of the night by a mile.

Interesting, but makes total sense. Hope they are actually on lolla's line-up!

my friend summed it up best, "I saw what I knew I was going to see, but not what I wanted to see. At the same time, they didn't fake it and it sounded incredible. it was awesome."

Omar's mom just died so I imagine that played a part, at least with him.

I can understand money makes the world go round, but if I wrote some songs eleven years ago when I was in another phase of my life, I would find it impossible to sing the songs today and actually enjoy it. It must be heart-breaking to sing these songs, for him, knowing that he has no emotional connection to them anymore.

naw, Cedric was into it. he sang them, he was jumping around. he grabbed my friend by the shirt and shoved the microphone in his face. it was a good time. but he also "sang them" - like I said, I saw a band who finally got to play the songs they made the way I think they always wanted to play them.
