After an opening set by Zechs Marquise, At the Drive-In played their first show since 2001 (as it said on the show poster) at Red 7 in Austin last night (4/9). It was also the first in a series of pre-Coachella warm up shows that continue in Dallas (tonight) and then Marfa.

According to show promoter Transmission Entertainment, the surprise gig sold out in 11 minutes after being announced via Twitter the other day. In addition to all those packed inside, there were many listening from the alley outside. Though some complained that Omar Rodriguez Lopez seemed a bit out of it (update: his mother recently passed away), the band was generally high energy with Cedric hanging from the rafters of the newly refurbished club, and the crowd going insane. If you haven’t seen it already, take a look at the setlist, along with more pictures from the Austin reunion show, below….

At The Drive-In tweeted a picture of Texas…

Texas

along with the Quarantined lyric “A single spark can start a spectral fire ….” Was it a hint? An April Fools Joke? Just an ode to their home state? A tip on avoiding wildfires? What does it mean?!?!

Cedric was in El Paso that day.

At The Drive-In play Coachella later this month, and though some overseas dates were announced, there are still no other U.S. shows announced.

In other reunited bands playing Coachella news, Refused just played surprise show in Sweden. Check out video HERE.
