Seattle post-hardcore/post-punk band Pretty Girls Make Graves have announced their first show in 17 years! They’ll play their sophomore album, 2003’s The New Romance, in full at When We Were Young 2024, which happens on Saturday, October 19 at Las Vegas Festival Grounds. It’s their only announced date at the moment.
The band announced their breakup early in 2007, citing the departure of drummer Nick Dewitt, and writing, “the rest of us feel like it wouldn’t be right to continue on without him. The 5 of us feel very lucky to have met and worked with some truly amazing people over the years.” They played their last shows in Seattle that June; vocalist Andrea Zollo went on to front Deep Creep (which also featured PGMG’s Derek Fudesco), with guitarist Nathan Thelen forming Drug Cabin with onetime Ambulance LTD frontman Marcus Congleton.
We included PGMG’s 2002 debut, Good Health, in our list of the 35 best emo and post-hardcore albums of 2002.
