Veteran rockers American Football brought their reunion tour to New York City this past weekend (10/10 – 10/12) for a sold-out, three-night stint at Webster Hall. Fresh off an appearance (which marked the band’s first live performance in 15 years) at last month’s ‘Pygmalion Music Festival’ in their hometown of Urbana, Illinois, Mike Kinsella and crew (including fresh new bassist and Mike‘s cousin, Nate Kinsella) rolled through The Big Apple for a series of unforgettable shows which even included a secret last-minute, late-night gig at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus (for only 5 bucks, too) this past Saturday night (10/11), which was presented by Noisey, and was apparently shut down by the cops at around 3am, as BrooklynVegan reported.
Earlier this year, American Football released a deluxe edition (w/ various demos and live tracks) of their 1999 self-titled debut album. The band’s reunion tour continues through the end of the year, hitting San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago (remaining dates here).
