Lo-fi indie rock pioneer Lou Barlow – a founding member of Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, as well as the Folk Implosion – got up-close and personal with not one, but two free shows at Saratoga Springs’ One Caroline Street Bistro last month.

The intimacy was superb. And, of course, both shows – Saturday night, May 6 and a Sunday, May 7 matinee – were sold out (or whatever the equivalent is for a free show).

Playing with passion and intensity, Barlow showcased selections from his new EP, Apocalypse Fetish, in addition to taking requests. And much to the delight of the lucky audience members, he stuck around for a meet-and-greet after the show, chatting with fans and signing CDs.
