Spring Heeled Jack Reunion Shows This Weekend

Not that the die-hard Spring Heeled Jack fans need any reminders (Across the Aisle singer and SHJ fanatic Megg Howe just texted me a little while ago to ask if I was going to either show). They are playing two all ages shows this weekend at Toad's Place in New Haven, CT: Friday, May 7 at 8:00 pm and Saturday, May 8 at 8:00 pm. There are some good openers too, including Tip the Van on Friday night and The Pietasters (!) on Saturday. Here's hoping that these gigs inspire SHJ to come down and visit NYC soon...


Check out the press preview coverage here (Moon gets some love!) and here (more love!).

Update #2:

There is a review of the Friday night SHJ show in the Hartford Courant.

Ahhhhhhhh, I would kill for SHJ/Pietasters in CA. Damn you Pietasters, you were supposed to come back to CA after the bullshit with the LA club back in 08. Where are you?

Steve from Moon said...

There is a lot of buzz about these SHJ shows...maybe the band will find the inspiration to do a few more reunion shows? Cali seems like a stretch, but they would do well to play a few more gigs in along the Boston, NYC, Philly, DC corridor...

Can't speak for The Pietasters.

Oh I know CA would never happen, just wishful thinking :) I was considering flying to New Haven, but $700 for a round trip ticket seemed a bit too much.

SHJ is one of the bands I never got to see. Still love Songs from Suburbia, don't understand how they didn't get big from those songs, so catchy, so good!!!

These shows were AMAZING. I had the luck of making it to both nights.

The New Haven Advocate had a great article on the show -

I had a lot to say leading up to the shows here -
