We're all pretty excited around here--and rightfully so, I'd say--about the Built to Spill/Dinosaur Jr. show at the Granada Theater this evening. No doubt you are, too.
I just hope you have your tickets already--over the weekend, we'd heard sales to the show had already reached 900 tickets. So you can pretty much rest assured that the 1,100-capacity room at the Granada will be sold out tonight.
So, then, for those who might end up left out, this should come as a nice little treat: At 6 p.m. today, Dino Jr. member Lou Barlow--who'll be playing two sets at the Granada this evening, including an opening set under his own name, and backed by The Missing Men--will play a third set, this one a free in-store performance at Good Records. Most widely regarded for his work in Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, it should be noted that Barlow has also released a whopping 11 full-length solo albums since 1990.
Which, surely, makes the whole three sets in one night thing a little less daunting a task...
