The Matches Reunite for Their First Show In Five Years
Bay Area favorites the Matches are set to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their debut, 'E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals,' with a string of reunion shows beginning tomorrow (Nov. 8) in San Francisco -- but footage of a warm-up show has made its way online.
The band -- who went on hiatus in 2009 after releasing three albums -- played at Leo's Music Club in Oakland earlier this week in preparation for two shows this weekend at Slim’s and one at the Great American Music Hall, both in San Francisco. The hometown gigs will be followed by a show at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago on Nov. 14, a show at Gramercy Theater in New York on Nov. 15 and two at the Troubadour in Hollywood on Nov. 21 and 22.
Check out a couple videos from the Oakland performance:
In the meantime, a fan has started a Kickstarter to raise money for a documentary about the band. Watch the videos below for details:
