Oakland, CA punk/pop/alternative band The Matches reform for the ten-year anniversary of the Epitaph Records release of their first album E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals, which garnered the band international attention. In addition to their subsequent two full length albums released on Epitaph, the band’s legacy is still largely based on the success of their guerrilla promotion of a fresh and self-sufficient scene of largely high school and college-aged bands and fans in the East Bay, that fostered a thriving art-centric punk and alternative rock scene.
After many years of touring internationally, becoming mainstay headliners at Slim’s, and selling out The Fillmore for a final show in 2009, The Matches disbanded amicably to explore other endeavors. Now, the original lineup of Justin SanSouci, Jon Devoto, Matt Whalen, and Shawn Harris are in their early thirties, and are coming together to honor their now-adult Bay Area fans and nostalgists with a one-off performance of their teenaged album that started it all at one of their favorite venues, the Great American Music Hall.
