Dinosaur Jr. bassist and Sebadoh leader Lou Barlow has contributed a dense body of emotionally (and often sonically) raw songs to the American indie-rock canon since the late 1980s. While both are still going concerns, and Dinosaur Jr. is now four albums deep into a reunion period, Barlow has also spent a lot more time over the past decade or so touring and recording under his own name. Releases like the 2015 album Brace The Wave and 2016's Apocalypse Fetish EP find Barlow working in a spare, acoustic vein, and he'll also take that approach at this backyard show at a private residence in Madison. While Dinosaur Jr.'s still a very good live band, Barlow's own work is best suited for intimate settings, so this show should be a treat for those who appreciate his soul-baring lyrics and gift for melody. This show is open to the public, but the address will only be disclosed to ticket buyers. Madison duo Bent Antenna opens the show. —Scott Gordon
