YOU GUYS. Are you aware that Latterman will be playing the New Direction Fest in Olympia in just a matter of days? DAYS! I have waited for years to see this band. I AM SO EXCITED!

And Latterman's reunion is just the beginning. Next month we have Desaparecidos at the Showbox at the Market and Refused at Showbox Sodo (moved from the Paramount, ugh, but whatever), and then in September there's the Promise Ring at Bumbershoot. Four bands I've loved, loved, LOVED, but have never seen before! (Wait, have I seen Desaparecidos? I can't remember...)

Life, why are you so great sometimes?

So with all the upcoming reunion action, I need to ask: Which are you most excited about?

Not really a "reunion" per se, but the fact that Joel RL Phelps is making new music and playing shows again is pretty much the raddest thing to happen to music this year.

Oh yeah, it was also pretty cool getting to see the AmRep/Touch & Go band Tar in Chicago last month.

Latterman for sure! But I'm missing Saturday's show to see Dear Landlord. Thankfully, Latterman got added to Fest, so my stokedness lives on!!!

Holy hell, Megan! I didn't know dogs were capable of mating with bats (or vice versa).

Unless Mutya Keisha Siobhan already split, this poll is moot.

Moot, I say.

Desaparecidos definitely played a show a thousand years ago at the Paradox when it was still in the upper reaches of the U-District. I think they broke up / cancelled the rest of their tour a few days later.

@9 It is quite possible that is when I saw them, then! I thought so... I should look in my old photo boxes. I bet I have horrible photos of the show that I thought were really, really good at the time. ("The blur makes it artistic!")

@9/10 - I definitely remember missing that Paradox show. And I definitely remember my buddy coming to my place and telling me about this band he'd never heard of, and a kid who looked like Conor Oberst singing... I was pretty mad/bummed.

To this day I don't understand why anyone likes the Promise Ring. I was stoked when they appeared with Burning Airlines at RKCNDY and were the headliners, because that meant I could leave early.

@ 11, I'd love to see that. I only ever saw them on the "Up In It" tour and I wasn't too familiar with their stuff at that point.

Oh, and the correct answer is.... NEGATIVE APPROACH.
