After a reunion tour last year, Sebadoh is back on the shelf again (as is Folk Implosion) while the Dinosaur Jr. reunion roars. Meanwhile, common thread Mr. Barlow follows up on his own career with another solo album, opening for Dinosaur Jr. alone on occasion. For his shows, he's recreating his upcoming sweet little record (think of it as a big aural hug) by corralling bassist's Mike Watt's band, the Missingmen. Someday, it'd be great to see "An Evening With Lou," covering material from all of his bands. With John de Vries.
