What was it Michael Corleone said in The Godfather? "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in"? That quote could certainly apply to the Fluid. The act, which had initially just intended to get back together for a few shows leading up to Sub Pop's 20th Anniversary celebration, recently announced two more shows in New York and New Jersey. The first gig is slated to take place at Maxwell's on Friday, January 16, followed by a show the next night at Williamsburg Music Hall in Brooklyn. Props to the Overcasters, who have been tapped to open both shows. Hell, yeah, we say! Can't imagine a cooler band to get the nod. And God help those East Coast cats. If those shows end up being half as good as the ones we witnessed this past summer at the Larimer and the Bluebird, they won't know what the fuck hit 'em. -- Dave Herrera
