Lou Barlow has been to St. Louis several times in recent years, both as a solo artist and as part of Dinosaur Jr. Of course, Barlow's biggest claim to fame is the band Sebadoh, which was a pillar of the lo-fi rock underground in the '90s. That band reunited and did shows in 2007, the first time that the Sebadoh lineup featuring Barlow, Eric Gaffney and Jason Loewenstein had toured together since 1993. In 2011, in support of forthcoming reissues of 1994's Bakesale and 1996's Harmacy -- the former release has 25 bonus tracks! -- the trio is gearing up for another round of tour dates. Oh yeah: And this tour will bring them to Off Broadway on Saturday, April 2. Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 day of show, and are on sale today. The concert starts at 9 p.m. The Sebadoh line-up this go-around will be Barlow, Loewenstein and drummer Bob D'Amico, who's also in the Fiery Furnaces. Need proof of Sebadoh's genius? Go on below.
