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. Tickets are on sale now for the July concert.
For our first post-hiatus installment of Vintage Video, we spotlight a band that, at least in its live incarnation, is sadly underrepresented on YouTube: dream-pop icons Galaxie 500. So here’s a 7-song, 40-minute set that finds Dean Wareham, Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang performing material from 1988’s Today and 1989’s On Fire.
That concert in Atlanta featuring ex-frontman Dean Wareham ‘performing the Galaxie 500 songbook’ that we told you about last month won’t be a one-off after all: Wareham and his Dean & Britta bandmates have announced a scattered string of such shows between August and December.
This week’s new releases include a new solo album from the Pixies’ Black Francis called ‘NonStopErotik,’ plus expanded reissues from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Galaxie 500 and Duran Duran, as well as a vintage live album from The Wedding Present.
