Be Here Now: The Suggestions’ Reunion @ Putnam Den, 7/16/10
Capital Region power-popsters the Suggestions – featuring guitarist John Brodeur, bassist Keith Hosmer and drummer Jason “Slade Jones” Schultz – will be reuniting for a show tonight (July 16) at Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs.
“It’s our first time playing together in more than three years,” Brodeur explains, pointing out that the show has been something of a logistical nightmare to line up. “Keith is flying in from Chicago, and Jason from Denver, for the show.”
Equally exciting is the fact that the potent threesome will actually be recording some new tunes, too, at North Sea Studios in Albany. “After the gig, we’re going into the recording studio to cut our first tracks together since 2004,” Brodeur reveals.
Don’t expect the reunion to last, however. As Brodeur says, “We’ll have broken up again by Tuesday morning.”
Tonight, the Suggestions will be sharing the Putnam Den stage with their old friends Paranoid Social Club (from Portland, Maine). “It’s their first area show in two years,” says Brodeur, who also threatens, “I may even hop onstage and do a song with them.”
