That’s right! The Massachusetts post-hardcore metal maelstrom known as Cave In is doing a reunion show. So far, it looks like it’s just one show, at Great Scott in Boston. Tickets went on sale this morning at 10 am and sold out.
I’m currently trying to grab frontman Steve Brodsky for an interview for Bostonist. I put on a show with Steve and folkie Elijah Wyman last year at Brandeis, and it was quite a combo. Steve’s a wonderful songwriter and an excellent performer, and a nice and friendly guy to boot.
And as for Cave In? I was lucky enough to catch them before their current hiatus a handful of years ago, in Newbury Comics of all places! Though I wasn’t as familiar with their discography as I am now, it proved to be one of the best sets of that summer, and I can still distinctly remember the set being so loud that some of the merch fell down and hit one of the guys (Adam I think) partway through the set. I hope there are a handful of tickets leftover that I can grab!
Hilarious interview from years ago:
PS: Here’s what the band had to say on their myspace, a brief announcement concerning the reunion just two days ago
After 3 1/2 long years, Cave In has decided to end its hiatus. Please
join us for an EP release show at Great Scott’s (1222 Commonwealth
Ave., Allston MA) on Sunday, July 19th @ 9PM. Also playing will be our
friends Disappearer and Phantom Glue. Copies of the “Planets Of Old”
limited 12″ (recorded by Adam Taylor, Alex Hartman & Johnny Northrup @

We hope to see your lovely selves.
Steve, Adam, J.R., Caleb
