ROB SEZ: Who would've imagined we'd see a Let's Active reunion show in 2014? For a long time, Mitch Easter himself didn't believe it would ever take place. But recently, someone asked — and original L.A. drummer Sara Romweber said yes — and it actually happened, 30 years after the original line-up last played together. Sadly, the late and much-lamented Faye Hunter could only be present in spirit. Yes, there are a few musical glitches here and there, and Mitch had a little trouble hitting some of the high notes. But for all that, this show is the best kind of "blast from the past." 
GREAT BIG THANKS to Mitch and Sara for saying "Let's do this thing"... 
  
Lynn Blakey sang Faye's lead vocal on "Blue Line"
