Coincidentally, this year, Hagfish will reunite again for a show booked at Trees--on Christmas night, to be exact.
I guess that would mean Crain was indeed correct when he said "Face it: More often than not, when a band says it's playing its last show ever, it usually means it's playing its last show...until the next one."
Hagfish might have had good reason for getting back together, though: The article later reveals that Coldfront Records, the band's label, was set to release two new records for the band--a B-sides album, and an unreleased interview, apparently.
