Just down the road from Baltimore, the site of Virgin Mobile Festival, lies our Nation’s Capital, a city with a rich punk ethos and the original hometown of Shudder to Think, one of the most innovative and revered acts to put out albums on D.C.’s famed Dischord Records. Save for a few recent appearances in New York, the band’s set at the festival marked their official return to the stage, kicking off a smattering of dates around the country this fall.

Find out more about their reunion in our backstage interview from Virgin Mobile Fest, and watch some live footage below of Shudder performing “Jade-Dust Eyes,” off 1990’s Ten Spot.
