Yeah, you read that right. According to unnamed-yet-credible sources (okay, it was Kurt of SoundEx, over on the Hands Up! board), this coming October 12th and 13th will see a once-in-a-lifetime Axiom "reunion weekend", dragging back together bands from those heady days of Helltown industrial noise-rock. Apparently the former Axiom proprietor, J.R. Delgado, is bringing a bunch of folks back out of obscurity/retirement, including the much-loved Pain Teens. Folks, the PTs were one of the first bands I ever heard of here in Houston, back when I was a wee country-bumpkin freshman just in to the big city, and they were, uh, eye-opening, to say the least. Folks who know me will know that I'm not generally big on the noisier end of the musical spectrum, it's true, but I've got miles and miles of respect for Bliss Blood, Scott Ayers, & crew -- they did exactly what they wanted to do, radio play and mass acceptance be damned, and it was awesome to see.
Oh, and while the Pain Teens are only confirmed act as yet (per Kurt), rumor has it that other acts will include Cave Reverend and Sugar Shack (who blow all that "garage-rock" junk you find swirling around out there out of the water; "Go! Space City" is still one of the best "Houston songs" ever). Mark yr calendars...
