Lost in all the news of Soundgarden reuniting is the fact that Portland's Dharma Bums are also getting back together. It's been brewing for some time, as the members have fairly recently shared the stage at one of Jeremy Wilson's Mastan Music events. The only reunion show scheduled is in Portland -- February 20th at the Crystal Ballroom, with Young Fresh Fellows opening! Maybe if things go well, they'll consider playing 3 hrs North as well.
News of the reunion naturally had me listening to the old albums, but only the Frontier Records releases (Bliss, Welcome) are available digitally. Someone needs to mine Poplama for some reissue opportunities, like the Bum's debut Haywire, and releases from The Posies, Squirrels, Young Fresh Fellows, Fastbacks, The Walkabouts, Pure Joy, Jimmy Silva and more.
