Sebadoh: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jul 31 2013

When Lou Barlow exited Dinosaur Jr. and formed Sebadoh in 1989, it was impossible to know or predict just how important his new lo-fi project would become. The influence of albums like III, Smash Your Head on the Punk Rock, and Bakesale on indie rock is still palpable today, even though more than two decades have passed since their release. After a mammoth 14-year recording break, Sebadoh released the quite marvelous Secret EP earlier this summer, whetting our appetites for upcoming full-length, Defend Yourself, which hits shelves Sept. 17. At the band's intimate show this week, expect a sneak preview of new material, as well as some noisy old classics.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
