Babes In Toyland Reunion Is On
Minneapolis punks Babes In Toyland, significant players in the early ’90s alternative rock boom, haven’t played a show since 2001, and they haven’t released an album since 1995′s Nemesisters. But they’ve been a frequent name-drop lately, particularly in White Lung reviews (including our own). The timing seems right for a reunion, and a reunion is what we’re getting. In an interview with Lancer Radio at Pasadena College yesterday, Kat Bjelland and Maureen Herman confirmed that they’re getting back together to write new material and play shows.
They expect the first gig to be a benefit for Lady Parts Justice in Minneapolis, but no date has been specified yet.
