In it for the money, Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh plan new tours

Posted March 16th, 2007 by eric

With the imminent release of Beyond on Fat Possum records on May 1st, the first Dinosaur Jr. album featuring the original trio of J. Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph since 1989, the band is hitting the road again on May 11th. Annoyingly, there are only ten cities on the itinerary, thus far. The usual New York, Chicago, and Hollywood, blah, blah, blah. No love for the south, of course.

I’m astounded Lou and J. have gotten along well enough to complete a record, much less more than one tour. Barlow is so agreeable these days he’s even patched things up with Eric Gaffney and Jason Lowenstein, reuniting his post-Dinosaur Jr. band Sebadoh for a spring tour. No recording plans yet, though, says Gaffney: “We’re just going to get through this (tour) and see where we’re at.”

Sebadoh dates:

April 19; St. Louis, Mo.; Duck Room

April 20; Chicago, Ill.; Abbey Pub

April 21; Detroit, Mich.; Magic Stick

April 22; Hamilton, Ontario; The Underground

April 23; Toronto, Ontario; Horseshoe Tavern

April 24; Montreal, Quebec; El Salon

April 25; Cambridge, Mass.; TT The Bears

April 27; Hoboken, N.J.; Maxwell’s

April 28; Brooklyn, N.Y.; North Six

April 30; Northampton, Mass.; John M. Greene Hall (with Sonic Youth and J. Mascis)

May 2; Philadelphia, Pa.; Khyber

May 3; Baltimore, Md.; Ottobar

May 4; Carrboro, N.C.; Cat’s Cradle

May 5; Athens, Ga.; 40 Watt

May 6; Atlanta, Ga.; Echo Lounge

May 7; Birmingham, Ala.; The Nick

May 8; Nashville, Tenn.; Exit-In
