Eighties indie legends back

And they’re playing a couple of shows

Eighties indie legends Throwing Muses have reformed for three shows.

The band, currently consisting of Kristin Hersh, drummer David Narcizo and Bernard Georges on bass, are set to play the Innipukinn Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland on August 5.

They will follow this festival appearance with two dates in the US.

The dates are:

Cambridge The Middle East (August 11)

New York Bowery Ballroom (12)

The band formed in Boston in 1983 and released a string of albums throughout the Eighties and Nineties, the most acclaimed being 1991’s ‘The Real Ramona’. They carried on as a a three-piece when guitarist Tanya Donelly quit to form Belly in 1992, and split after releasing the album ‘Limbo’ in 1996.

They have reformed sporadically to perform live since then, and even got round to releasing a self-titled comeback album in 2003, which featured backing vocals from Donnelly.

Meanwhile, Muses leader Hersh will play the following solo dates:

Seattle The Crocodile (July 25)

Portland Berbati’s Pan (26)
