With both Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh on hiatus (not to mention Folk Implosion), indie staple Barlow now has time to bone up on his solo career, touring with Mike Watt's Missingmen band. The format for the shows has been Lou starting out solo, then the band joining in, then Lou solo again. Interesting concept, and a shame that another Lou (Reed, to be exact) won't consider the same for his own shows. With Wye Oak.
