New York, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Dean Wareham will be doing his final east coast performance of his all-Galaxie 500 set at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Friday July 20th. Wareham has been a staple of the indie rock scene for over two decades. Now, 25 years after the release of the first Galaxie 500 album and the recent reissues of the complete Galaxie 500 studio recordings on Domino Records, Wareham will make his final east coast appearance playing from the Galaxie 500 catalogue. The set, in which he is accompanied by his wife Britta Phillips and drummer Anthony LaMarca, has been received with much acclaim by critics and fans who never got as much Galaxie 500 as they would have liked.
Galaxie 500 formed in Boston in 1987, releasing three studio albums for Rough Trade from ’87 through ’91 when they released This is Our Music. Since then Wareham formed Luna, recording seven albums, then moving on to Dean & Britta in which he records with Britta Phillips. Their latest album is 13 Most Beautiful: Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests. Around that time Wareham also released a memoir titled Black Postcards.
The show will be opened by TEEN, an up-and-coming Brooklyn band who live with one foot in the shadow of Galaxie 500. The influence of Wareham and cohorts is apparent in their shoegaze-come-psych-pop melodies. Their hazy vocals and reverb-laden sound reveal the huge influence of Galaxie 500, but TEEN manage to make that influence into something all their own with lush harmonies created by all five members of the all-female band.
