Dean Wareham will step out of his ongoing Luna reunion next month to celebrate his earlier band with a one-off performance of Galaxie 500’s 1988 debut album Today in San Francisco — a concert Wareham is calling a “one time only” event.
Wareham will play the album July 15 at The Chapel. He’ll be backed by his wife/Luna bassist Britta Phillips; Jason Quever, who performs as Papercuts; and Alison’s Halo drummer Roger Brogan.
On his Facebook page, Wareham characterizes the performance as “one time only.” In a statement from the promoter announcing the concert, he says: “Today was the first album I ever recorded and is still one of my favorites. I love playing these songs after so many years.”
Tickets for Wareham’s performance of Today are on sale now.
