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.
