The Dream Syndicate announces ‘first New York show of the 21st century’ this November

The Dream Syndicate circa 2012

The reunion of Paisley Underground heroes The Dream Syndicate — who have played select of dates in the U.S. and Europe over the last couple years — finally reaches New York City this fall with the announcement of a Nov. 15 performance at Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn.

The New York date joins just a handful of other Dream Syndicate shows this year, including dates in Portland, Ore., Seattle, Atlanta and Los Angeles, and follows bandleader Steve Wynn’s current tour with The Baseball Project, which has him on the road with Scott McCaughey and R.E.M.’s Mike Mills.

Wynn also is booked for a short run of solo-acoustic dates in the midwest this fall.

The current incarnation of The Dream Syndicate features frontman Wynn, original drummer Dennis Duck, bassist Mark Walton (who joined after 1984′s Medicine Show) and guitarist Jason Victor, who plays in Wynn’s current band, The Miracle Three.

  1. Great news! Here’s hoping they’ll be accompanied by any of the other bands that joined them in last year’s reunion dates on the West Coast: the Bangles, the Three O’Clock, the Rain Parade.

    Not to take away from the greatness that is The Dream Syndicate, but anyone who is a fan of any of those musicians (R.E.M., The Dream Syndicate, The Young Fresh Fellows, ZuZu’s Petals, The Minus 5, et. al.) really need to go see a show by The Baseball Project.

    • This is true for all sorts of reasons — not least that the Baseball Project has been known to play the amazing “Tell Me When It’s Over.”
