Australian Tour April 2012
Having just wrapped up a triumphant come-back tour with Sebadoh in September, one of the most prolific and influential songwriters of his generation LOU BARLOW returns to Australia in solo mode this April.
A founding member of Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, two of the most acclaimed rock bands of the late 80s / early 90s, Lou is considered a pioneer of the lo-fi movement.
After parting ways with Dinosaur Jr. in 1989, Barlow turned his attention to side project Sebadoh and by 1993 had released six records and earned a devoted cult following. In 1994 Barlow formed Folk Implosion which stemmed his biggest commercial hit to date, a song written for the Kids soundtrack titled Natural One. In 2005, Barlow reunited with Dinosaur Jr. who have since released and reissued several albums and toured the world extensively.
In addition to his band involvement, Lou is a respected solo performer in his own right. He has released two records, Emoh and Goodnight Unknown, allowing him room to explore his introspective folk rock roots.
Accompanied only by his guitar, Lou Barlow will deliver intimate performances to audiences in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
