TaunTaun to reconvene at 3 Kings Tavern on Friday, February 10, for Jim Norris benefit show

Update (12/6/11): Suspicions confirmed. The mighty men of TaunTaun are indeed reconvening to play a show. "I don't want to call it a reunion," says Ian O'Dougherty, "because we never broke up. This is just for Jim." The Jim in question is Jim Norris of 3 Kings Tavern, where TaunTaun will play on Friday, February 10. Norris, as you might recall, was recently hospitalized for a spider bite and left with a pile of hospital bills. To help ease the burden, a number of Rev's friends, including John Baxter of ZetaKaye House, have organized a series of benefits, and this is one of them.

"We met Jim when we were playing in the Gamits, Uphollow, and Pinhead Circus in the '90s," says O'Dougherty, "and think of him more as a friend than as a promoter or venue owner. Tauntaun hasn't played together since September 2010... but, when we heard that Jim needed help paying medical bills from a recent six-day stay in the hospital, we knew that we could offer assistance by getting back on the horse, or jumping into the fire, or in this case, crawling out of our nice, cozy Tauntaun. Rust is being removed, muscles stretched, lyrics remembered."
