Fluid Reunite Again for Jan. Shows

 

 

Legendary Denver grunge era band last
spotted at the Sub Pop 20th bash….

Back in the summer we brought you the story about Sub Pop
Records’ 20th anniversary celebration in Seattle, along with a
corresponding feature on the Fluid, which had been an early mainstay of the
label and got back together (as did Green River) for a few shows in conjunction
with the event. By all accounts, the performances were dynamic and riveting,
the band’s powers undiminished.

 

At
the time, Fluid vocalist John Robinson noted that the reunion was essentially a
one-off, but he left the door open for the possibility of future dates, saying,
“We don’t have to create anything – there’s no expectations, nothing riding on
it. If something comes back in the way of an offer to do a festival here and
there, maybe do a show in Europe, we’ll look
at it at face value: Does it line up with our schedules? Does it make sense?
Will we get a cool trip out of it? Maybe pocket a little money? The thing is,
as I said, with documenting and throwing all this out there, we could be
creating some kind of commodity with it where if the website we’re putting
together gets enough traffic, maybe some promoters
will see that and go, ‘Hey, maybe there’s an audience for this…’ And put
together an offer. But lucky for us, we get to exist in this timespace right
now with zero expectations. If anything comes of it in that regard, it’s just
bonus.”

 

So
now word arrives that, indeed, the Fluid will be doing two shows next week, in Hoboken and Brooklyn:

 

Friday, January 16th.
Maxwell’s, Hoboken NJ.  tickets
w/ The King Left and The Overcasters.

Saturday, January 17th, 2009.
Williamsburg Music Hall
tickets
w/ Jemina Pearl (from Be Your Own Pet) and The
Overcasters.

 

 

Be there or be square.
