    Default What's with all the Death From Above 1979 talk?

    Has anybody else been hearing this? I've been hearing people saying there are rumors that DFA 1979 are gonna reunite this year. As much as I would love this, I really don't think it's happening but I'll keep my fingers crossed, just in case.

    MSTRKRFT is in Europe and they still hate each other, so no.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    Doesn't it seem a little too early for a DFA 1979 reunion?

    I saw them about seven times, each time they played Houston. They always blew me away.

    They came thru with some good bands too, Turing Machine, The Red Light Sting, Whirlwind Heat, The Washdown, Panthers (ex-Orchid), Vietnam, Nine Inch Nails and tons others but I was usually wasted.

    DON'T RUB IT IN. I am very sensative about the fact I may very well never get the chance to see them, and I gave up a couple of great oportinuties to see them.
    With that being said, WAY to early. But I have faith it will happen someday. I hope you plan on attending Coachella 2012.

    Not going to happen, Jesse and Sebastian still have a hate for each other. Yeah I've seen them, Jesse spit on the crowd........... a lot.

    Jesse is much happier now dropping sick beats on EVERYONE, wearing hockey masks, and drinking Jack Daniels during his sets. Thank you.

    I donno why you'd want to do a reunion when you already have another hugely successful band

    i wish they would. that would get me and my friends there for sure. they opened up for qotsa and nin when i saw them and were amazing. i have this theory that they broke up after only one full length because they were too great and rocked to hard to sustain themselves. but thats just me

    I met JFK at 07 and he flipped over the tat.( Personal achievement)

    A reunion would be great but, i don't see it happening.

    Upcoming Shows:
    Kasabian/Bo Ningen: 10/1 @ Metro
    Coachella: 4/10-12 @ Empire Polo Fields
