The Walkmen To “Reunite” For NBA All-Star Weekend Concert

The Walkmen To “Reunite” For NBA All-Star Weekend Concert

Well, that didn’t take long. The Walkmen, who announced an “extreme hiatus” and played a goodbye show in Philadelphia last month, will headline a concert at New Orleans’ One Eyed Jacks on 2/15. San Antonio Spurs’ Matt Bonner and his brother Luke’s non-profit Rock On Foundation is throwing the Alt-Star Party, which will also feature Lost Bayou Ramblers and a DJ set from Vampire Weekend’s Chris Tomson. Here’s what Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser had to say about it in a press release:

We thought it might take a lifetime to get us back together–til the Alt-Star Party gave us the nod. How could we stay on the bench? We’re coming 110%. Full-court press. Man to man. Rock n Roll, Pick n Roll.

Before the big show, Leithauser will perform with some indie all-stars on Gene Clark covers tour later this month. His solo LP, one of several planned side-projects from the Walkmen, is expected in the spring.
