Sebadoh @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Sebadoh

Barlow's songs like "Freed Pig," "Soul and Fire," and "Magnet's Coil," made their expected appearances, but it was the Lowenstein songs that were the true highlights of the night. Playing with such speed and energy that belied his age, the songs seemed as fresh as they must have in the early 90s. Even "Sister," off 1993's Bubble and Scrape, took on new life as Lowenstein's crushing vocals and bass work seemed even improved from those early lo-fi years.... As they made their way through songs like Bakesale's "Got It," "Rebound," and "Careful" -- which Barlow referred to as the best Sebadoh song- it was evident that this was a triumphant night. -[One Thirty BPM]
Sebadoh played two NYC-area dates over the weekend with Mazes, including 11/11 at Maxwell's with Risk/Reward and 11/12 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Dichroics. Pictures from the latter adorn this post. Sebadoh have no other dates in their near future other than an appearance aboard the Weezer Cruise in early 2012.

In related news, Lou Barlow's bandmate in Dinosaur Jr, J.Mascis, is preparing to release a new 7" with Sub Pop on 11/22. Stream "I've Been Thinking" from said 7" (the flip is a cover of Edie Brickell's "Circle") below and look for J aboard the Weezer Cruise as well.

J.Mascis and Dinosaur Jr. tour dates, that song stream, and pictures from MHoW are below.

Jesus. Lou Barlow needs to get a job. Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be musicians....

^^ Jesus. You need to get a life.

growing up to be an anonymous commenter is so much better than growing up to be a respected and hard working musician.

Lou Barlow needs to do some push-ups or sit-ups or something.

Scarecrow opened with a solo set? I wish he'd get back together with the Cowardly Lion...

lou and jason and bob are all first-rate musicians. played almost 2 hours at maxwell's. music sounds just as fresh as it did when he/they were younger. used to be never trust anyone over 30, now it's anyone under 30 isn't worth even listening to, on this blog anyway.

You are opening up for someone awesome and you decide to dress up like a scarecrow dildo?
Get a clue.

just so we can follow, who exactly are you? we all know these musicians by name, but your importance seems to be a mystery to the readers of this post

I thought this show was so awesome. The openers were fun though I liked Dichroics better than Mazes honestly. Mazes sounded a bit repetitive with some of their songs.

I thought Sebadoh nailed every song they did, honestly, and Lou's comment on Henry Rollins was fucking hilarious, look it up on YouTube.

Anyway, his guitar tone sounds wicked in person, so deep throaty fuzzy goodness. All he was using was one pedal too for the most part other than a chromatic tuner pedal.

Good show, plus the clips on YouTube are awesome too.
