1.6 Band Reunite, Play NYC
Uh, wow--the well-beloved-in-very-tiny-circles Long Island post-hardcore quartet 1.6 Band are reuniting to play shows in D.C. and New York. In their two-year, 1991-1993 stint, they played with any number of now canonical Tri-State bands and released a record with Jersey hardcore titans Rorschach (who are apparently also reuniting, original roadies and all), not to mention a 7" called Pimpin' Ain't Easy, which I treasure to this day. No idea why this is happening at all. They play Cake Shop on June 19th, after guesting on WFMU the day before.
