Indie-pop trailblazers the Wedding Present are touring for the bizarre thrill of celebrating the literal "coming of age" of their major-label debut, 1989's Bizarro. That album housed their first U.K. Top 40 singles, the gnashed-teeth "Brassneck" and the skittery, Cure-meets-Fall bounce of 'Kennedy," and showcased frontman (and sole original member) David Gedge's penchant for tongue-in-cheek love songs. If you're lucky, they'll play the bonus tracks from the reissue, too, which include covers of Pavement's "Box Elder" and Tom Jones's "It's Not Unusual." With Girl in a Coma.
