AS frontman for indie heroes Pedro the Lion, songwriter David Bazan was a crossover hit, finding legions of adoring fans in the indie rock and Christian music community from 1995 to the band’s dissolution in 2006. Bazan’s fuzzy confessional writing and warmly deep vocals touched on early emo, indie rock, and pop-punk in a way that charmed a variety of music lovers.
After a brief moment playing in indie-synth band Headphones with Frank Lenz and T.W. Walsh, Bazan made his solo debut in 2009 with Curse Your Branches. An intense kind of break-up record, it’s a documentation of Bazan carefully considering and ending his faith and relationship with the Christian orthodoxy that played such a large role in Pedro the Lion’s early career.
Currently, Bazan’s on a living room show tour. Alongside bassist Yukki Matthews, he’ll play Pedro the Lion, Headphones, and solo songs in an intimate setting; the tour is being filmed for an upcoming film about Bazan, so if you attend, you might just see your mug in a rock doc!
The location of the low-key concert, booked by the folks at Revolution Yoga, will remain a secret until you buy a ticket; get yours at undertowtickets.com.
