The venerable Built to Spill are on tour, and making a stop in Sacramento. The band, whose current lineup features front man Doug Martsch and guitarists Brett Netson and Jim Roth from the original ’90s lineup alongside new band members Steve Gere (drums) and Jason Albertini (bass) will be at Harlow’s next Friday.
Built to Spill released its most recent album There Is No Enemy in October 2009. It was the bandâ€™s first album since 2006â€™s You In Reverse. Previous studio albums include 2001â€™s Ancient Melodies of the Future, 1999â€™s Keep It Like A Secret, and their major-label debut, 1997â€™s Perfect From Now On. In 2012 Built to Spill remain an influential force in compositionally intelligent, lyrically thoughtful, melodic, guitar-centric rock music.
Holy crap, looks like Yo La Tengo and Man Or Astroman? are playing back to back nights at Harlow’s in May. Everything’s coming up late ’90s college radio today! Was anyone else at the “Clone Project Alpha” show at Old Ironsides back in the day?
