Drive Like Jehu reunites

Band playing free show at Balboa Park

By Jeff Terich

It's finally happening. After 20 years, Drive Like Jehu has announced that they're getting back together. Pretty much since the local post-hardcore outfit broke up in 1994, fans have been clamoring for a reunion—and that includes me—though the best we ever got were some pretty frustrating hoaxes.

This time, however, it's actually happening. Today, the URL drive-like-jehu.com showed up out of nowhere, with a picture of Balboa Park's Spreckels Organ Pavilion, indicating a free, all-ages show on Aug. 31. The website was then reposted on Facebook by Bar Pink, which is owned by guitarist John Reis, and Los Angeles donut shop Donut Friend, which is owned by drummer Mark Trombino. Finally, John Reis confirmed the news by email.

The show coincides with the 20th anniversary of the band's second album, Yank Crime, as well as their breakup in 1994. Perhaps most interesting of all is the news that the band will be accompanied by civic organist Dr. Carol Williams. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to listen to nothing but Yank Crime for the next 11 days.
