The reunion, which was partially motivated by superb guitarist Thom Enright's artistic resurgence after a recent battle with cancer, will be the first time the group has united since the opening of the second Lupo's location in 1993. After a handful of inspiring rehearsals, the pending event has made Fisher philosophical.
"We somehow made people feel good about themselves," he says. "Think about it. Some guy has had a shitty week. His girlfriend is mad at him, his boss is an asshole, maybe he's got a little car trouble. He goes out and sees the Young Adults and says, 'Hey, at least I'm cooler than those guys.' Yes, we poked fun, but we didn't look down on the audience. We didn't tell anyone what to do. If we ever had anything that could be called charm, I think that's partly where it came from."
