Austin band The Reivers are no strangers to the idea of change. The band came together in Austin in 1985 under the name Zeitgeist, but they were forced to change their name before the release of their second album, under pressure from another band with the same name. The band met some success in Austin in their heyday of the late 80s, before disbanding in 1991. In 2008, they reunited for occasional shows around town, this time under the name Right Or Happy. Now, they’ve recently announced a new album, Second Story, once again calling themselves The Reivers. For all the changes, their music remains as good as it ever was.
The Reivers came by Studio 1a before their reunion show at the ND. Listen here for the full session with host Kevin Connor!
