I still have my Hum t-shirt, most likely more than a decade old at this point, all holes and pit stains and a faded Martians Go Home logo on the back. It’s my favorite shirt, it has been since I picked it up from the merch table during the band’s “Downward is Heavenward” tour, and I’m sure it always will be—I’ll never throw it out, no matter how disgusting it becomes. That tour, unfortunately, was pretty much the last bona fide trek for the Champaign band, one of my favorites during my formative years. Once in a while Matt Talbott and team will resurface for special-event reunion shows, much like tonight’s, but the band hasn’t released a record since 1998’s “Downward,” which was its aggressive, more devastating follow-up to breakthrough “You’d Prefer an Astronaut.” The patient alt-space-rock is definitive of the nineties—Hum couldn’t exist now, I don’t think, stuck somewhere between Explosions in the Sky and Built to Spill (although, the band did see a quick resurgence when Cadillac used its hit “Stars” in a few commercials last year). But I would sure like to see ‘em try. I haven’t worn that t-shirt in public in some time, but hey, tonight could be the night. (Tom Lynch)
