David Pajo Formerly of Slint To Play Bodega

David Pajo, Formerly of Slint, To Play Bodega

David Pajo recorded the first Slint album, Tweez in '87 with Steve Albini, going on to perform and record with some very important bands; including Stereolab, Royal Trux, Tortoise, and Palace Brothers

After releasing a series of recordings under his "M" moniker (Aerial M, Papa M), David's latest offering is a critically acclaimed record simply titled 'Pajo', an ambient folk gem.
In all his years of recording and performing, Pajo has never visited New Zealand – so naturally Strange News is pleased to announce this solo tour!
Bar Bodega: Thursday 9 March (with Ghostplane – acoustic set)
Odeon Lounge: Friday 10 March (with Renee-Louise Carafice)
Saturday 11 March (with Pumice)

Limited tickets available from Slowboat (Wellington) and Real Groovy Records.
