We’ll Eat Anything – A Brainiac Reunion Show For a Good Cause

On Saturday, December 6th, the four surviving members of Dayton, Ohio’s rock band Brainiac took to the stage for the first time in seventeen years since the death of Tim Taylor, guitarist and frontman of the the band. They played as We’ll Eat Anything – an early name the band once took the stage under. From the inital responses, the night looked like it fulfilled everyone’s hopes of a sweaty, noisey, cathartic mess of glitched-out rock and roll.

The core group was joined onstage by local musicians from notable bands to perform a full set of the legendary band’s material. Other local Dayton bands also performed selected tracks from Brainiac’s discography, as well as the work of Jeremy Frederick – a dear friend of the band and a major contributor to the Dayton rock scene who passed away in 2012.

While the excitement and nostalgia generated by the Brainiac reunion is understandable, it was motivated as part of a fundraiser for the Izzy Frederick Education Fund, the daughter survived by Jeremy Frederick.

  1. Thanks for sharing this! I hadn’t heard of Human Reunion, but I’ll be sure to check it out. Especially if Schmersal had anything to do with it.
