Richmond punk rock band Avail will be playing two shows at the National in July, reuniting for the first time since the band’s last live performance in 2007.

After immediately selling out tickets for the July 19 show Friday morning, the band announced that it will play another a second show the following night again at The National.

Tickets are $25 and go on sale Saturday, March 30 at 2 p.m. at the box office and 5 p.m. online.

The band formed in Reston in 1988, but relocated to Richmond a few years later, eventually obtaining a legendary status with a devout following in the local punk rock music scene.

The reunion shows this summer coincide with the 21st anniversary of the band’s Richmond-centric album "Over the James."

The band’s sixth and last album, Front Porch Stories, was released in 2002.
