I've got a whole city to hold down

The block rockin' beat

The Ninth Annual Hideout Block Party goes down Saturday, Sept. 17.

The big news is the event will host the first reunion of the original dB's lineup since Chris Stamey, Peter Holsapple, Will Rigby and Gene Holder played a one-off show in May 1988 (and just their second gig since parting ways in 1982).

Other acts on the bill so far: The M's, the Redwalls, the Sam Roberts Band and Nomo.

(The dB's will also play downtown at the House of Blues later the same night.)
