Dean Wareham is no performance rookie. Considered one of the original voices of American indie rock, Wareham started his career in 1987 with his band Galaxie 500. Nowadays, Wareham is on his own, having released the EP Emancipated Hearts late last year and his self-titled debut in March, produced by My Morning Jacket's Jim James. Known for a full, expansive style, the guitar sophisticate creates dream-pop in its purest form, with delicate guitar and drum combinations, simple melodies and romantic vocals. Fans of Wareham's extensive album catalog will rejoice in hearing that he has not limited his touring four-piece, including wife Britta Phillips, to recent material, but rather turns back the clock for a fragile take on tracks from Galaxie 500 and his other classic band, Luna. Local dreamers HOTT MT and Drug Cabin share the stage for an evening of timeless instrumentation.
