After nearly 30 years, a full-blown reunion of the Paisley Underground will take place this December in California as four of the scene’s key acts — headliners The Bangles, plus the newly reunited The Three O’Clock, The Dream Syndicate and Rain Parade — team up for at least two concerts in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The concerts are set for Dec. 5 at San Francisco’s Fillmore and Dec. 6 at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, the latter of which is a benefit for Education Through Music. Tickets for the Los Angeles concert go on sale 10 a.m. Saturday and the San Francisco show follows at 10 a.m. Sunday.
The last two years have seen a wave of Paisley Underground reunions, with Steve Wynn getting The Dream Syndicate back together last year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Days of Wine and Roses, Rain Parade taking the stage earlier this year for a benefit gig, and The Three O’Clock reuniting for Coachella and a few other concerts. The Bangles, of course, have been back together since the late ’90s.
It’s not clear whether there will be more shows together; aside from The Bangles, who regularly tour, the other Paisley Underground acts have not performed extensively since reuniting.
