One band's farewell is another's reunion

Charlotte rock band Fusebox Poet plays its final show April 4 at Amos'. But the radio-ready hard rocker's final bow will also mark the reunion of Livalie - the band the three members of Fusebox Poet (above) were in before their current band.

The April 4 concert will be Livalie's first time on stage since its farewell show in 2008. Fusebox Poet formed after Livalie (below) disbanded. Two of the sextet's songs were actually featured on Fusebox Poet's debut album. The members of Fusebox Poet announced on its Facebook and Twitter pages that the trio, who have played together since they were 16, is calling it quits.

All three members will join the original lineup for Livalie as well.

"We all grew up together and have remained close through our lives and present musical endeavors," says Sean Cody of Livalie. He reports Livalie will play its entire album, "A Perfect Compromise" at the show.

Tickets are $10 to $12 and are available here. Cairo Fire and Centennial will also play.
