Neil Michael Hagerty performing Royal Trux's Twin Infinitives in December

[Ed. note: An earlier version of this story was published that implied a conflict between the members of Royal Trux. This was intended as a joke, but could easily have been taken for the real story. We regret the error and apologize to our readers, Royal Trux, and Drag City Records.]

Neil Michael Hagerty is planning on performing the rightly-heralded 1990 sophomore album by Royal Trux, Twin Infinitives, in its entirety on December 8 in Brooklyn, NY’s Saint Vitus space. Though Jennifer Herrema will not be on stage, the performance was the idea of both members and has her full support.

What will Twin Infinitives, an album that sounds like sloppy garage wastoids endlessly anti-jamming while being simultaneously pulled in two different directions (up and down, reportedly via speed and heroin), sound like in the full light of middle-aged sobriety? As with other such concerts, organized by people who weren’t old enough to be there in the first place, it’ll probably be a mix of weirdness and wonderment. An odd spectacle that you’ll probably want to get tickets to ASAP, given the draw for these kinds of deals, even when a spin of the original material could potentially be a better way to remember the piece in question.
