Idolator recently reported that alt-rock pioneers The Feelies will play a few shows in the New Jersey and New York area over July 4th weekend (including one opening for Sonic Youth in Central Park). If the rumors are true, the shows will be the group’s first appearance since 1991, when frontman Bill Million abruptly moved to Florida, thus dissolving the band.
The Feelies crafted an unpretentious and layer-oriented sound that influenced R.E.M., Robert Christgau and Garden State writer Rick Moody. The band’s live shows are reportedly not-to-be-missed, so if you’re in the tri-state area, keep your head up and keep checking back with Paste for confirmed dates and locations.
