But my reasons for posting “Magnet’s Coil” and “Ocean” over more obscure Sebadoh songs are threefold: Continue reading

Giveaway: Sebadoh at The Granada

16 Feb

Sebadoh’s existence has spanned 25 years and in that time the band has had its share of lineup and record label changes (with nine releases on six labels). What started as an outlet for Lou Barlow’s songwriting outside of Dinosaur Jr. (as he felt intimidated and overshadowed by J. Mascis) became an indie rock powerhouse unto itself.

When Barlow was kicked out of Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh became his main focus. It was also a means for him to take control of a musical project and express the pent-up anger and tension caused by his tenure in and ejection from the other band (which he has since re-joined, of course). The group also stood as an integral part of the formation of the lo-fi scene, along with bands like Pavement and Guided By Voices.

Barlow continues to use Sebadoh as one of the many showcases for his musical talent. And the band is currently on tour in support of the reissues of Bakesale and Harmacy, their most commercially successful albums.

The tour will hit The Granada this Friday and we have a pair of tickets. For your chance to win them, send an email with “Sebadoh” in the subject line and your name in the body to giveaways@daybowbow.net by 11:59 p.m. We’ll notify winners tomorrow.

Sebadoh will play The Granada on Friday, February 18 with openers Quasi and DoveHunter. Tickets are $20-$36 in advance and $22-$39 the day of the show. Doors are at 8.
