Broken Social Scene reunion is just one-off gig

Broken Social Scene reunion is just one-off gig

Members of Broken Social Scene say this weekend's reunion show probably won't lead to anything else.  The Canadian indie rockers are scheduled to take the stage in Toronto Saturday for their first performance together since going on hiatus in 2011. 

Frontman Kevin Drew tells "Rolling Stone" there are no plans to make a new album, explaining that the upcoming show is just a chance to "go back and remember why and how and what the purpose" of the band was.  Bandmate Brendan Canning agrees.  But despite the hiatus, Canning says they're all still friends, so it just makes sense to play a gig for the sake of playing a gig.

The gig in question is part of the day-long Field Trip music festival, which marks the tenth anniversary of the record label Drew co-founded, Arts and Crafts.  Other acts set to appear at the Toronto event include former BSS member Feist, Stars, Ra Ra Riot, and more.
