The Blasters at the King King

Monday night, rumor had it there would be a top-secret Blasters reunion at the King King. They needed footage for something they are filming about drummer Bill Bateman. The Blasters fronted by Phil Alvin still play gigs, but this is the first time the original band has played together since I don't know when. I got there just in time to see them do Marie Marie and two other songs before the Alvins drifted off and everyone else prepared for a late-night jam session.
