It's finally official: This past January, we spoke with Gamits mastermind Chris Fogal about getting the old band -- which checked out entirely too early, if you ask us -- back together again, dude (cue incredibly shoddy Cockney accent). We just received word from our pal Virgil over at Suburban Home Records, that the band has scheduled it's reunion show for Friday, August 6, at the Bluebird, in the company of the Fire Drills (featuring our own Jason Heller) and Throwaway Sunshine. On a related note, the reconfigured Gamits lineup is set to start recording its new album, The Halves and Half Knots, next week.
