I doubt that the band Sebadoh need much explanation. The 90s alt-rock band could easily be described as one of the pioneers of the current wave of indie rock sound overwhelming the music scene today. Why see an imitator when you can see the original?

I have to say, I am very disappointed by your choice to highlight this show over The Dead Milkmen. Why would anyone want to see either an imitator OR an originator of the current wave of indie rock sound overwhelming the music scene? Yuck. I believe in swordfish!

Keep in mind that Lou Barlow (of Sebadoh) was one of the first "rock stars" I have ever met. I am biased.

I'm just as biased. The Dead Milkmen were one of the main inspirations for forming my first band.
