Excitement brewing.

Posted By on Thu, May 18, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Can one actually brew excitement? I dunno. I imagine the fermentation process would ruin everything. Pontiac claims to build it, but that's altogether different.

Hey - The Pants!

What once felt like some bizarro fantasy is almost upon us. I've been chatting with band members, old friends and fans, and I think everyone is starting to get hot 'n' bothered.

Listening to all the old records has brought up a range of partially submerged emotions. Can't imagine what this process is like for the fellas in the group.

Above all, The Pants wrote great tunes and played them with class and conviction. Their stuff was often sophisticated, but it always rocked. It was smart, but never precocious. And what fine humor!

Buy your tickets. It'll be worth it.

PS: It's been brought to my attention that nearly a decade ago, some freelance reviewer at Seven Days wrote a shit review of The Pants' swansong, Eat Crow. This individual was obviously deranged.
