Sebadoh rolls into Denver amid rampant speculation about a possible full-fledged reunion, triggered by a short tour earlier this year and frontman Lou Barlow's musings on the web. "[We have] no plans as of yet," he told an inquisitive reporter from Pitchfork Media. "But we're feeling some tingle in that direction." Meanwhile, in their second sequence of tour dates this year, Barlow and partner Jason Lowenstein are playing as a duo, working their magic of years past atop pre-recorded drums. The band has reportedly been playing sets that lean heavily on its late-'90s material. Reunion or not, this show should be notable at least as a musical curiosity: two guys from a well-established outfit touring under their old band's name without any of the band's half-dozen full lineups. The Turbo Acoustic Tour, as it has been dubbed, could very well be the vanguard of a new form of reminiscence and milking the past.
