The Loved Ones, a (Be)Loved '90s S.F. Quartet, Are Reuniting for One Night Only

Posted By on Tue, Dec 7, 2010 at 4:11 PM

Local music fans seasoned enough to have accrued a significant percentage of their adolescence (or, hell, their lives) prior to the adoption of the Internet may remember the Loved Ones, a celebrated S.F. power-pop quintet from the mid-'90s. They may also be thrilled to hear this: The Loved Ones are reuniting for one show only, later this month in S.F.

Frontman Bart Davenport, guitarist Xan McCurdy (who now plays in Cake), bassist Mike Therieauon, and drummer John Kent will perform for FREE on Saturday, December 18, at the Burritt Room inside S.F.'s Crescent Hotel. (The venue isn't a total surprise -- in addition to making music, Davenport now books shows at the Burritt Room.)

As we finish yet another reunion-heavy year in music, it's nice to see older local bands -- especially ones that didn't get their due -- reminding listeners of their former glory.

What now-dissolved local bands would you like to see play a reunion show? Tell us on Twitter (and follow us, while you're at it), or post a YouTube video of said band's best show on our Facebook page.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
