Between them, John Reis and Rick Froberg are responsible for some of guitar music's most beloved bands, from Rocket from the Crypt and Hot Snakes through Obits and Night Marchers. Still, arguably their most revered is the early '90s post-hardcore band they played in, Drive Like Jehu. Though they disbanded in 1995, they've just announced a reunion show.

The influential band, which is rounded out by Mike Kennedy and Mark Trombino, have launched a new website announcing their impending reunion.

Details are incredibly scarce, but the group have revealed that they'll hit the stage at Balboa Park in San Diego on August 31. The show is free and all ages are welcome. From the looks of it, that means you just need to make your way to San Diego to see them play.

Though they haven't said as much, their seminal Yank Crime LP was released in 1994. Thus, this show marks its 20th anniversary, so perhaps a reissue is on the way as well.

In recent years, Reis and Froberg haven't shied away from resurrecting old projects, with reunion tours from both Rocket from the Crypt and Hot Snakes.
