Following the re-release of Galaxie 500’s three classic albums on Domino Records last year, former G-500 frontman and guitarist, Dean Wareham, set out on tour playing a set of all-Galaxie 500 material with a three-piece band featuring his wife Britta Phillips (Luna, Belltower) on bass and drummer Anthony Lamarca.
And now Dean Wareham and his three piece band are bringing the music of Galaxie 500 to Australia for the very first time performing shows in Sydney and Melbourne before embarking on a three show run in his native New Zealand.
Wareham’s voice is as haunting and inviting as it was over 20 years ago, and his guitar work alone is worth the price of admission. One of the benefits of seeing Wareham up close is getting a look at his expressive non-expression, where the muscles in his face are relieved of duty, eyelids refusing to come down, as he loses himself in each song. All the while cranking out gorgeous solos. – Heaven is Loud August 2010
Tickets for both Australian shows go on-sale Friday 26th August.
Don’t miss Dean Wareham performing the music of Galaxie 500 with special guests Sand Pebbles.
