Bleeding Hearts, Syrup, Goner 

When: Fri., Aug. 5, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $5-8

It's a full-circle moment for Triangle trio Syrup, a well-textured, guitar-driven rock act from the mid-'90s who haven't played together in 15 years. The reunion wheels started turning late last year during singer and guitarist David Poole's return to another of his older bands, Slurpeeeee! Syrup drummer Robert Shi had stepped in for Slurpeeeee!'s absent drummer, and idle conversation sparked interest in a Syrup return. When they discovered original bassist Tom Mills (who moved to California a few months after their 1994 formation), was back in town, it just made sense.

"Our kids are at an age where we can play again, have fun and pretend we're young," says Poole. "When we were playing before, everything was so serious and had such grave importance. Now it's so different. You get a better perspective on life. There are no pipe dreams here."

Shortly before they called it quits in 1996, they recorded and mixed their second album, First Aid Kit, with producer Tim Harper (Whiskeytown, Mayflies USA). It never came out, but they've already written three new songs and are finally considering a way to put it into the world.

"Robert and I have talked about getting it mastered and maybe releasing it like it is, or with some of the original recordings, re-record others and the new material we've written," he says. "What we'd like to do initially is get our set together, play out some, then figure out what makes sense." With The Bleeding Hearts and Goner. —Chris Parker
