Yes, PYLON is on the move. After a successful line of performances in support of the “Gyrate” re-issue, Pylon is back on the road for a gig or two. Ironically, out of all the bands started in the early 80’s, Pylon’s the only one still doing shows with the exact same lineup they began with.
They’ve got two shows coming up, one with Mitch Easter’s special Let’s Active cover band in Winston-Salem NC on August 8th, the other in Athens on September 12th. I highly recommend going to one or both of the shows since this is a band that, unlike some others, is incredibly strong. Even the “i” Generation gets up and dances (which is really saying something).
Warning, wear comfortable shoes. Last time, my feet were aching for days.
