What’s a rocker to do when his formerly successful side projects head south creatively? For Lou Barlow, the answer is: Sweep the plodding memory of the last Folk Implosion record under the rug and dust off Sebadoh, the indie idol that made lo-fi a way of life for a generation of slackers in the 1990s. After reuniting the band for a European tour in late 2003, Barlow and longtime bassist and songwriter Jason Loewenstein hit America this spring for the first time since 1999’s The Sebadoh. For this jaunt — dubbed the Turbo Acoustic Tour — expect both hits and obscurities spanning the group’s entire career, a set list that will excite nostalgia whores longing for the days when beer bongs and Bakesale made for a fine Friday night.
