#tbt Our 2004 interview with the legendary music tastemaker/DJ/encyclopedia Matthew Pinfield and an acoustic performance of "You're Forever An Hourglass" on NY's 92.3 K-Rock. Matt was an early supporter of Benzos and it was fitting that he also hosted what would end up being our final performance in 2008 during CMJ (not counting our reunion show in /12). Big thanks to our homie Allison Hagendorf for planting the seed!

Steve uncovered this in storage the other day. Thought we'd share it here as it was one of musical highlights. This was back in '04 when we were a 6-piece, too. The photos were from a photo shoot we did in Brooklyn at our manager's friend's house.

"Everybody's hurting just like me. And you know it's never-ending. Nothing's like what it seems. Watch the masses gather to be seen. And so we'll see soon after, nothing is in between."

"Let it fall..."

"We're building the future's confidence. You've got to leave town, leave now. We're breeding the future's confidants. It envelopes all you see now, bring it down."

"You'll say you wait for me. Be here when I return. This work I lay into is work I've used to help me lose."

"Everything you see, is everything I do. It spirals down to you."

"Do you find that you stare and waste your mourning stanzas there" (we changed the spelling so our album title wasn't so depressing).

Happy Friday (and happy birthday to me). Here's a video for our tune "Bella" that we used as projections for our reunion gig. More coming from the rest of that set.

If anyone who attended our gig the other night happened to film any portion of it, we'd love to see it. Just email with whatever you have. Maybe we can try and piece together the full gig with everyone's footage. So far we have "It's Amiable" and the improv section of "...Hourglass."

Oh, and I screwed up. I know I said we would have the reunion show recorded and make it available for free download, but in the rush of it all, I completely forgot to arrange that with the soundman. My bad. We DO have some cool photos and video clips from the night. We'll post once ready. - Christian

Thanks to everyone who made last night possible, both behind the scenes and out in front. By far the best Benzos show ever, but that has more to do with such a loving and supportive crowd.

Just got a sneak peek at the custom visuals (new clips by Raffi Asdourian and old clips by Adam Neustadter) that we'll be projecting over us at our one-time reunion show a week from today at NYC's Mercury Lounge. Mind bending, to say the least. Looks like I may not need to eat shrem before the gig like I was planning to ;)

In two weeks, you can catch us live for the first time in 4½ years at the place where it all started, Mercury Lounge, with Happy People, Dinowalrus, and Inky Jack. While most bands recommend you buy tickets in advance to impress the promoter, we urge you to so you don't get stuck out in the cold, listening to nothing but a muffled hum on Houston. Plus, you'll miss the awesome, projected visuals we have ready for the show.

"I will wait till it’s my time, I will wait till you’re watching I will wait till your eyes are on me."

We recommend you grab tickets to this quickly as they won't be available for very long with such an amazing lineup as this.
