American Football


Mike Kinsella has enough genre-defining bands in his history that this’ll be the second band returning triumphantly after a decade-long gap this year (after the strength of the Owls LP and tour). After releasing an excellent self-titled debut fronting emo progenitors American Football in 1999, the band took an extended break, first returning to the stage at a surprise show in Chicago in early August. Right now, the original lineup of Kinsella, drummer Steve Lamos, and guitarist Steve Holmes (with Mike’s cousin Nate Kinsella adding bass) have only a few dates lined up: a stop at Champaign, IL’s, Pygmalion Festival and then two- or three-night runs in New York, San Fransisco, and LA, stretching through December. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that that’ll get fleshed out, at least with an official Chicago stop. –Adam Kivel
