After forming in 2003, the local indie pop band Return of Simple, a “guitar-less trio of classically trained musicians” named after a Langston Hughes novel, released a couple of records and became a fixture on the local scene before splitting up a few years ago.

The group recently announced it’ll reunite for the first time in seven years to perform at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 30, at the Grog Shop. Extra Medium Pony, Kitschy and Hannah Stak share the bill. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

For the latest incarnation of the group, founder Rob Kovacs has recruited a couple of new band mates, Alfredo Guerrieri and Stephen Klunk. The Grog Shop gig will mark the trio’s first show since it played in April of 2011 in Brooklyn, New York.

“Rehearsals are going well," says Kovacs in a press release announcing the show. "It’s been a while since I’ve played some of this material with a band, and it’s sounding great. We’re gonna melt some faces."

The band plans to release a new album later this year.
