When EU4IA performs at The Originals Music Series Thursday night at 7 p.m., it will be the first performance in a long time for the Lehigh Valley alt rockers.
The band — consisting of brothers Tyler (vocals) and Alex Haines (guitarist), father Rick Haines (bass), and good friend Ryan Perl (drums) — was last documented performing last July at The Gin Mill and Grille when the opened for Rebourne: The Ultimate Ozzy Tribute Band. On Thursday, they will end their hiatus by kicking off the fittingly-titled And So It Begins Tour at Chicago Restaurant’s Club Gravity. Joining them will be hard rock veterans The Tank, who themselves are no strangers to The Originals Music Series.
The gig is part of a two-night return which will also see EU4IA head back to The Gin Mill and Grille on Friday night at 7 p.m. Details on that event can be found here, while you can get a taste of what you’re in for when you see EU4IA below.
