An indie-rock godhead thanks to his work with Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh and The Folk Implosion, Lou Barlow brings his solo acoustic tour to Athens for a stop at our local record-pressing plant. Though he has spent much of the past decade touring and recording with the resurgent Dinosaur Jr., Barlow’s current creative streak finds him reconnecting with his singer-songwriter roots, as heard on 2016’s affecting and efficient Apocalypse Fetish EP. Expect an intimate evening with one of our most underrated songsmiths. According to a press release, “Requests will be taken, stories will be told, and Lou will be in the best setting to share the emotionally direct, melodic songs he’s known for.”
LOU BARLOW Known for his work with indie-rock icons Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, Barlow's current tour finds him playing solo. See Calendar Pick on p. 20.
