Huge news coming out of the indie music scene this morning: celebrated post-punk outfit The Dismemberment Plan are reuniting next year in conjunction with the vinyl reissue of their 1999 classic Emergency & I. The band broke up to much dismay in 2003, and since then haven’t exactly charmed the pants off the blogosphere with their solo projects.
I was fortunate enough to catch the band on one of their final tours back in 2002, and if The Plan can recapture even half of the intensity that colored their live shows at the turn of the millennium, we are all in for a treat. If you’ve never been introduced to this quirky, high-energy firecracker of a band, consider this your fair warning.
Dismemberment Plan reunion tour dates:
Jan. 21: Washington, D.C at Black Cat
Jan. 22: Washington, D.C. at 9:30 Club
Jan. 27: Philadelphia, PA at the Starlight Ballroom
Jan. 28: Boston, MA at Paradise
Jan. 29: New York, NY at Webster Hall
