Sebadoh and Quasi at Emo's

You kids and your lo-fi, garage-rock owe a lot to Sebadoh. Lou Barlow and co. were writing indie-rock on 4-tracks before that Wavves punk was even born! Lucky for those of us in Austin, we have the chance to pay tribute to Sebadoh not (just) by forming a shitty band ripping-off their sound but (also) by purchasing a $15 ticket to their show at Emo's tomorrow night. The band has re-united and is touring in support of the recent reissues of some of their most classic albums. Most, or all, of these reissues have, not only, been remastered but also offer lots of bonus tracks, exclusives and rarities. So, if you're a vinyl nut or you still purchase compact discs (what's that?) make sure you bring enough cash to shell out at the merch table tomorrow. Also, if you're thinking you might want to check this show out but you're not really sure, just buy a ticket now before they're all gone. Trust me, you want to check this show out.

Speaking of classic-indie/lo-fi rockers who all these damn kids owe their careers to, the legendary Quasi will be splitting the bill with Sebadoh tomorrow night. Even though Quasi will be taking the stage before Sebadoh I hesitate to call them the "opening-act". That honor belongs to local band, and Bloggy-favs, TV Torso.

I'm not trying to tell y'all how to live, HOWEVER, if I were you I would wear earplugs tomorrow night. Even though the show will be on the outside stage this show promises to be loud. If you forget your earplugs and wish you had some, Emo's DOES sell them at a low-cost. If you consider yourself a fan of music and want to hear it for the rest of your life then you should save your hearing while you have it. While I'm getting all motherly, don't effing drink and drive. I know drunk driving is some kind of a widely-accepted bloodsport here in Austin but that ain't cool yo! I mean, what if you ran over Miss Paws? Do you want to see me cry?!?! Gawd!
