Legendary Seattle band Sky Cries Mary is reuniting for a very special event — an October 24 appearance at Neumos that will feature both of the band’s classic lineups. The evening is a benefit for original bassist Joe Skyward in his battle with prostate cancer and marks the first time the band has performed in five years.

Sky Cries Mary‘s mystical Northwest space rock set them apart from the majority of bands in the Seattle music scene of the 1990s, as did their live shows, which were true performances — complete with projections and elaborate stagewear. The band released three full-length albums in their heyday (‘Return to the Inner Experience’, ‘This Timeless Turning’, and ‘Moonbathing on Sleeping Leaves’); this show will span the history of the band and feature the lineups from those albums as well as musicians who were part of their more recent work.
Joe of course was not only a member of Sky Cries Mary but also held down the thumping lower end with other northwest bands such as The Posies, Sunny Day Real Estate and The Walkabouts.
