Those without the dough (or the wheels) to see the reunited shoegaze legends at the All Tomorrows Parties festival in the Catskills still have two opportunities in town to see if My Bloody Valentine can live up to the legend thats grown around frontman Kevin Shields and his bandmates over the 17 years its taken him to make any headway on the long-delayed followup to 1991s Loveless. Given that nostalgia-soaked reunion gigs are rarely judged by the merits of the music youre actually hearing, its all the better for MBV, as they always aimed to deafen their paying audiences anyway.
