Blake Babies announce two US shows for October 2016

Photo: David Young

 

I think we can call it a bona fide reunion now.

After the release of the 1980s Earwig demos and the semi-private shows last month for PledgeMusic subscribers, Blake Babies today announced a couple more shows in John’s “hometowns”:

October 15, 2016 - The Basement East, Nashville, TN
October 16, 2016 - Saturn, Birmingham, AL

Support at both shows is Phoebe Bridgers.

Tickets are on sale Friday, August 5, 2016 at 10am CDT.

Magnificent.

Interview: Indie Stars Juliana Hatfield & Blake Babies Discuss Their Evanston Reunion | chicagoist

From a Blake Babies interview at chicagoist on the subject of future plans:

STROHM: Nothing specific, but we’re generally feeling good about the way things are going. I can only speak for myself, but I would love to find a way to do more with Freda and Juliana.

LOVE: Not yet, but I hope we play a few more shows. We are also discussing the possibility of reissuing our back catalogue.

HATFIELD: As far as the Blake Babies go, we are not really looking past this Chicago thing. We have no solid plans for anything else but the Boston shows were fun and I hope that at some point we can maybe try and do some more.
