Lou Barlow four-date New Zealand tour for January.
Lou Barlow - founding member of Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh, and Folk Implosion - is heading to New Zealand for four very special solo shows from 21-24 January, 2016.
Barlow is one of America’s most influential indie songwriters. As Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth so succinctly described: “Lou Barlow essentially invented lo-fi”.
Dates and venues are Chicks Hotel, Dunedin (Thurs Jan 21); Churchills, Christchurch (Fri Jan 22); Kings Arms, Auckland (Sat Jan 23); and San Fran, Wellington (Sun Jan 24).
The tour is proudly presented by Plus1, 95bFM and undertheradar, with tickets for all dates available now from UnderTheRadar.co.nz
Barlow intimately weaves acoustic guitar, baritone ukulele, vintage synth and loops, presenting material from across his 30-year songbook, including tracks from acclaimed Brace The Wave, his new (third) solo album.
“Barlow sang and played with a tenderness so moving that it had an almost hypnotizing effect on the audience…funny, melancholy and beautiful, the show Lou Barlow brought us encapsulated all the seemingly contradictory traits which have made him such a fascinating and beloved figure in the world of indie music.”
Terence Cawley – Tastemakers.com – September 2015.
Special guest at the Kings Arms show in Auckland is Jeremy Eade (Garageland).
