Look, I know the guys in local electro-rock duo Hyena are dreamy and all, but I haven’t seen this many Downtown chickenheads and bottlerats at a Friday-night Casbah show since -- well, since Hyena played there last time. What’s next? Bottle service in the Atari Lounge? Fifteen-dollar Appletinis at the bar? Tim Pyles poppin’ bottles? Clean bathrooms?! Madness!
Let’s face it -- most of the time, rock reunions are pretty stupid. Sometimes they can be kinda cool, allowing music fans another chance to see a beloved group. Some bands do it right (Led Zeppelin, Wire, Pavement), but most just end up looking like a bunch of farcical geezers in it for a quick buck.
