What’s really special about the reunion is that the entire lineup pays tribute to the Motion Sick’s musical lineage in the time since their hiatus began three years ago, with each opener featuring a former member of the band: Parks, celebrating the release of their new “Sweater Weather”/”Modern Fiction” 7-inch, features bassist Matthew Girard; the Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library boasts Epstein (like, duh); This Blue Heaven employs drummer Travis Richter; and Wash Pool features guitarist Patrick Mussari.
That’s pretty cool. Also cool? We’re giving away a Parks 7-inch and two passes to the show. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with PARKS in the subject line and we’ll select one winner at random Friday afternoon.
In the meantime, let’s get into some songs. And first up, is This Blue Heaven’s enchanting new single, “Goodbye Juliet,” which was premiered this past weekend on Anngelle Wood’s Boston Emissions on WZLX. It’s pretty like a princess.
And now, for the reunited headliners, who I think I last saw when we released the “30 Lives” video together at the Pill back in September 2007. Holy smokes that feels like ages ago!
