Yep. The Feelies are reuniting. Right now, they just have one live date set, opening for Sonic Youth at the River To River Festival in New York on July 4th. I'm sure they'll do a more expanded tour later on. And who knows? Maybe we'll get a new Feelies studio album. That wouldn't be so bad.
In slightly other news, The Feelies head guy Glenn Mercer is playing in Somerville pretty soon. On Saturday, May 17th, he opens for Wild Carnation, who consists of Feelies bassist/violinist Brenda Sauter and her husband Richard Barns (both of whom were also in Speed The Plough). They perform at Johnny D's in Davis Square in Somerville around 10:00.
