When CP's Andy Mulkerin wrote about space-rock pioneer Sonic Boom's 2007 Pittsburgh performance with his group Spectrum, he noted, "Given that the chance of a Spacemen 3 reunion anytime soon is slim, it's an enticing opportunity to see one of the founding fathers of the second generation of space rock."
While no reunion, tonight's Spectrum performance does promise to include an airing of classic Spacemen 3 material. And while Spectrum's hypnotic 2007 performance, at Garfield Artworks, was paired with sweltering heat, tonight's full-band show at the Warhol will almost certainly prove a bit more temperate. Not that there's anything wrong with watching the sweat run down your arms as you zone out to Spectrum, but it's not for everyone.
