Announcing a new Meetup for The Los Angeles Indie Music Meetup!
What: The Wedding Present Performing Bizarro
When: Friday, April 2,[masked]:00 PM
9081 Santa Monica Blvd
West Hollywood, CA 90069
The Wedding Present will be playing their 1989 album Bizarro in full on an upcoming North American tour in celebration of the record's 21st anniversary.
Bizarro was most Americans' introduction to The Wedding Present's jangle-on-speed sound, as it was their first to get released in this country, and was also their major label debut (RCA). While the album's singles, "Brassneck" and "Kennedy", have remained constants in The Wedding Present's live cannon, this tour will surely mark the first time some of Bizarro's songs been played live in the States since 1990, if ever. As to why frontman (and sole remaining founding member) David Gedge chose to celebrate 21 years, not 20, is anybody's guess but if nothing else I'm looking forward to hearing the album's nine-minute epic "Take Me." And we can only hope this will lead to them doing the same for their 1991 masterpiece, Seamonsters. And maybe they'll do it on the 20th anniversary.
Email me if you want to meet before the show for dinner & drinks.
