R.E.M.: and then there were four

April Fool was cool in Athens, Georgia.

R.E.M. played as a four piece last night in Athens, GA at the end of the Minus 5's set there. Reports from the scene indicate that local buzz was stating that R.E.M. would play, and over the course of the evening, the original four piece slowly reunited offstage as a predicate to their reuniting onstage. They played a slow version of Country Feedback before the night ended, with Bill Berry on bass. April 5, 2006 marks the band's 26th anniversary, and this seems like a nice run-up to that occasion.
