The best swag I ever got at a show was an orange bottle opener with the word "Grandaddy" printed on it. For the past 11 years, it has lived on my keychain, and I think fondly of them every time I crack a cold one. Mine was not the only heart that broke in 2006, when Grandaddy came to a slightly hostile end. So it's exciting that Jason Lytle is playing a week of free shows at Al's Den, with a rotating cast of buddies opening for him. His second solo album, Department of Disappearance, is coming out this summer, so it seems safe to expect a first listen of new songs, along with his repertoire of spacey synths and earnest vocals. But all of this may be burying the lede, which is: Grandaddy is reuniting! At least long enough for a string of festival and tour dates this summer. REBECCA WILSON
