Full Album Performance Trend Refuses to Die–Next Up: Wedding Present Doing “Bizarro” at Troubadour, April 2

GedgeHEADS UP

The Wedding Present @ Troubadour (Performing Bizarro) Fri 4/2

We’ll grant the Weddoes a pass on the whole full album performance trick that has long since been played out. Happy to have them back on any terms. Bizarro is closer to a true 20-year reunion, but returning Stateside with 1991’s epic Seamonsters might have been a bigger statement.

We do espy a curious gap on 4/18–coincidentally the 3rd day of Coachella–in their North American schedule:


1 : San Diego CA, USA – Casbah
2 : Los Angeles CA, USA – Troubadour

14 : Toronto ON, Canada – Horseshoe Tavern
15 : Pontiac MI, USA – The Pike Room at The Crofoot
