First show in fifteen years, eh? Pshaw! Could've fooled us. Last night, the Fluid played a (not so) secret show at the Larimer Lounge and sounded every bit as tight and vital as it did the last time we saw the band back in '91 (or was it '92?). There was a touch more grey -- okay, a lot of grey -- this time around, but otherwise, John Robinson and company genuinely haven't missed a step. In advance of the Fluid's official reunion show this Friday, we'll be posting a truckload of exclusive content, from photos to interviews, as well as a feature length profile. In the meantime, after the jump, we've posted some pics that Jon Solomon and Aaron Thackeray shot and embedded a few videos from the show. -- Dave Herrera
