On August 19, 2014, Hell froze over, as it was announced that seminal San Diego band Drive Like Jehu was reuniting for ONE show only, for FREE, and with an organ no less. I have to apologize. Because I live in San Diego, this blog has been SD centric, but this is international news and being covered by Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan and with humor by Noisey. A couple of years ago, it was rumored they were playing a festival in Florida, but it was all a hoax. So for now, it's one show only, but if Coachella comes calling maybe they will say "Yes" this time. Drive Like Jehu features John Reis, front-man for Rocket From The Crypt and Rick Froberg, both of whom have been in Hot Snakes the last few years. But, this is bigger news and the fans are a buzz! This band only released two albums, one in 1991 and the other in 1994. This is Drive Like Jehu's first show since 1995 and will be at the world famous Balboa Park Spreckels Organ Pavilion on August 31, 2014, accompanied by organist Dr. Carol Williamscrazy cool! Oh yeah, the show is FREE! If you can get here, I suggest you do!

For me, the week included NIN/Soundgarden, The Zombies, Mrs. Magician and a new favorite, Cheers Elephant, from Philadelphia. Looking ahead this week might actually include seeing Men Without Hats; I am a big fan of the "Safety Dance."

Enjoy the holiday and look for our return on September 10th with guest blogger and "Underground Collective" host, Axe of WLKK, Alternative Buffalo, 107.7.
