Event Details

Is it possible to be a lo-fi hero? Well, as Lou Barlow's massive influence attests, yes, it sure is. Praised by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore as the inventor of the lo-fi sound which defined indie rock in the 90s, Barlow has inspired legions of songwriters (and caused many to well up and have to make a swift exit from the party).

After co-founding and then getting kicked out of Dinosaur Jr, Barlow found his own voice with Sebadoh, Sentridoh, and the Folk Implosion; the sound is warm, downbeat and unflinching. In 2015, Barlow released a beautiful, intimate collection of songs, Brace the Wave; in his own words, "Nine songs without drums, without regrets".

Traverse the depths of Lou Barlow's music in an utterly unmissable career-spanning solo show.
