  • Dischord recording artist, The Make-Up, formed in 1995 in the wake of the dissolution of Nation of Ulysses, one of the last great punk bands.

Fans of that gospel-yeh yeh sound rejoice.

Washington's The Make-Up is reuniting again, and they'll be performing a show at Strange Matter on April 22 (The Day of the Earth) with several guests to be announced.

I heard about the possibility of this show awhile back from Steady Sounds' Marty Key, who was instrumental in setting it up with friend and frequent guest deejay, Ian Svenonious, the lead singer for the Make-Up.

Known as one of the most interesting and stylish figures in rock, Svenonious is also a published author and television host; there's an exhibit by artist Frances Stark involving his book "Censorship Now" at the current Whitney Biennial in New York (Here's an interesting recent interview with him about what he's learned from rock and roll.)

Tickets for what will surely be a joyous celebration go on sale Monday, March 20 at noon and will be $13 in advance and $15 day of show, if any are left.
