Sebadoh (US) to play five New Zealand shows March 27-31

Sebadoh (US) to play five New Zealand shows March 27-31

Concerts confirmed for Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch & Dunedin.

US indie kingpins Sebadoh return to New Zealand in March for the first time in 19 years to thrill lo-fi and indie fans in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

One year after an unforgettable Dinosaur Jr show at the Powerstation, Lou Barlow is back, this time with his fellow Sebadoh co-consipirators Jason Lowenstein and Bob D’Amico.

Sebadoh’s New Zealand concert dates are:
• Bodega, Wellington, Thursday March 27
• Churchills, Christchurch, Friday March 28
• Kings Arms, Auckland, Saturday March 29
• Chicks Hotel, Port Chalmers Dunedin, Sunday March 30 & Mon March 31.

Tickets for all shows are available online from 9am today from UnderTheRadar at this link: http://www.undertheradar.co.nz/tour/3388/Sebadoh.utr

Tickets are also available at these stores: Slow Boat and RPM (Wellington), Cosmic (Christchurch & Dunedin) and Real Groovy (Auckland).

The tour is proudly presented by 95bFM, undertheradar and Plus1.co.nz

Sebadoh fans can look forward to a mix of tracks across their career, from classic albums like Bakesale and Harmacy right through to last year’s acclaimed release Defend Yourself (Domino/EMI) – their first new studio album in some fourteen years.

The new album debuted at No. 1 in the US on the "New Alternative Artists" Billboard chart.

Sebadoh’s return to New Zealand comes 19 years after their last Kiwi tour, which included a Powerstation concert (July 1995) with Garageband and Drill, and at Warners in Christchurch with Brother Love.

Sebadoh are now viewed as one of the most important indie bands from 1990s to today, with seminal albums alongside the likes of Pavement, Guided By Voices, and Superchunk.

Formed in 1986 in Westfield, Massachusetts, Sebadoh put their own compelling stamp on low-fi indie rock, highlighted in early releases like 1990's Weed Forestin’ and 1991’s Sebadoh III.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
