Check out: The Backstage Rider with Sebadoh in Germany

Jason Loewenstein w/ Sebadoh @ Bowery Ballroom back in April (more here)
Waaaaay back in, um... April, we contacted The Backstage Rider (a.k.a. Mikala) to get press access to Sebadoh's Bowery Ballroom show as she handles the band's publicity. The idea was that we wanted to launch Fucking Nostalgic with coverage of a really great band that represented exactly what we were going for, and Mikala made that happen for us without hesitation.

We've kept in touch since, even collaborating on the amazing Dinosaur Jr. show that went down in June (coverage here and here), and now we want to point you in the direction of part one of her entertaining recent trip with Sebadoh in Germany. Included you'll find plenty of candid photos, a video of them playing "Forced Love" in Berlin and the crazy setlist of that very show. Get to it!

In other Sebadoh news, the band will be on tour across the globe until the beginning of October, before playing the Jeff Mangum-curated All Tomorrow's Parties in Minehead, UK (alongside The Fall, Low, Apples in Stereo and Olivia Tremor Control) in December. Then in January, Sebadoh will play that wacky Weezer Cruise we mentioned back in July. Did anyone actually get tickets to that?

And in lesser-related Sebadoh news, head to Slicing Up Eyeballs to listen to a cover of Neil Young's "I've Been Waiting For You" by Dinosaur Jr. that was just unveiled by Lou Barlow. Yeah.
