Members of the band Motel Beds joined WYSO music director Juliet Fromholt for an interview on Kaleidoscope announcing the band's upcoming reunion show at the Brightside in downtown Dayton.

It's been nearly a decade since the Motel Beds released their last full-length album Mind Glitter. Since then, then the individual members of the band have been involved in other musical projects and creative pursuits, but all it took was a text a message to get PJ Paslosky (vocals), Tommy Cooper (guitar), Ian Kaplan (drums), Darryl Robbins (guitar) and Tod Weidner (bass, vocals) thinking about an encore performance.

"Ian sent me a text about, you know, 'what would you what would you think about the Motel Beds doing a show,'" said Tod Weidner. "I was like, yeah, good luck getting Darryl to go along with it. And then, actually, it was Darryl's idea."

The band members talked about how they're reacquainting themselves with their old songs ahead of the July 19 show. They're also looking forward to performing for an audience of old fans and new friends.

"I'm really excited to to play to some some new faces and as well as the old faces in my situation where I've been gone for like, five years coming up now," said Tod Weinder, who's now based in California. "You know, there's a lot of people I just haven't seen at all. And so I'm really looking forward to reuniting with a lot of the, the old people and and yeah, if they bring new people, that's just the icing on the cake."
