Let's Active circa 2014

Last weekend, ’80s jangle-pop favorites Let’s Active reunited on stage in Carrboro, N.C., for the first time in 24 years, performing an 11-song set at Be Loud! ’14, a benefit for the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation in memory of 15-year-old Sophie Steiner, who died of cancer last year.

The performance featured bandleader and R.E.M. producer Mitch Easter joined by founding drummer Sara Romweber and Game Theory bassist Suzi Ziegler filling in for original member Faye Hunter, who took her own life last summer. The Love Language’s Missy Thangs assisted on keyboards, and onetime bandmember Lynn Blakey pitched in, too.

Below, check out the full setlist and some video clips courtesy of Larry Tucker.
