Reunion tours attract a strange amount of derision. It's as if making music that's been culturally relevant—if not also influential—for 30 years is something to be embarrassed about. Of course, nostalgia's part of the equation, but these kinds of tours give us the chance to see acts we thought we'd never see live. Case in point: The Dream Syndicate. Steve Wynn takes a break from his Baseball Project duties for a short run of dates beginning tonight with his original band, one of the cornerstones of SoCal's vaunted but short-lived Paisley Underground. The Dream Syndicate reconvened just two years ago (minus some original members) for their first shows since 1988, celebrating the 30th anniversary of their debut The Days of Wine and Roses. This go-round it's the same for the follow-up, 1984's The Medicine Show, long characterized as Crazy Horse to the debut's Velvet Underground. Fellow long-timers the Minus 5 and Eyelids join them on a bill that destroys the notion that rock 'n' roll is just a young man's game. JEREMY PETERSEN
