Fall Tour: 90s shoegazers Ride

Ride now

Ride then

Ride then

As a GenXer, music fan, Anglophile and music critic I listened to Ride quite a bit in the 90s along with Jesus Jones, The Charlatans UK, Swervedriver, Curve and Lush. shoegaze. Swirling and churning guitar. psychedelic-laced indie rock. Indelibly hypnotic. Thrilled that the band has reunited nearly twenty years after breaking up and will be touring this fall beginning on September 17 at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. and closing out November 19 in Hawaii on with a date in Boston on October 3 at The Paradise Rock Club.

The band formed when the members were teenagers in Oxford, England in 1988. The band released several influential albums including 1990’s Nowhere and 1992’s Going Blank Again. They broke up in 1996, following the release of Tarantula.
