Last year, the British ’90s shoegaze lords Ride, who broke up in 1996, announced that they would reunite to tour the earth this year. And earlier this year, band principals Mark Gardener and Andy Bell got together to play an acoustic show. But all four members of the band didn’t reunite until last night in their Oxford hometown, when they played their first real show in nearly two decades. It’s hard to judge an ocean of guitar sounds from a YouTube video recorded off of a fan’s phone, but based on all available evidence, they sounded massive (even if they did make at least one questionable hat decision). Below, watch some videos from last night’s show.

In the months ahead, you’ll get your shot at seeing Ride at festivals like Coachella and Primavera Sound.
