Hard to believe it, but Sebadoh is almost 30 years old. Yes, these pioneers of lo-fi indie rock from Massachusetts started all the way back in 1986 when Lou Barlow (before he had even left Dinosaur Jr.) co-founded the group with Eric Gaffney. Jason Loewenstein joined in 1989 and these three distinctive songwriters are often referred to as the classic Sebadoh lineup, releasing two bona-fide classic albums, Bubble and Scrape and Sebadoh III, before Gaffney left the band four years later. Barlow and Loewenstein continued with three more albums before going on hiatus in 1999, touring sporadically for 14 years before returning with Sebadoh's 2013 album, Defend Yourself. They are touring very extensively for the rest of the year with Bob D'Amico of the Fiery Furnaces and Circle of Buzzards on drums, but there's no telling when you will get another chance to see them.
