David Bazan & Band
David Bazan was, for many years, the songwriter and driving force behind the acclaimed indie band Pedro the Lion, building a dedicated following and selling a couple hundred-thousand albums based in large part on his extraordinary melodic sense and erudite, theologically-themed songs. After a decade helming the project, he found himself embroiled in a major personal philosophical and spiritual cataclysm, wrapped in a growing drinking problem. Bazan got to work exorcizing both his demons and angels, ditching the Pedro moniker in favor of his given name and producing three critically-acclaimed releases; Fewer Moving Parts EP (2007), Curse Your Branches (2009) and Strange Negotiations (2011).
To celebrate the vinyl re-issues of Pedro The Lion’s back-catalog and the 10th Anniversary of the band’s seminal album, “Control,” Bazan and his band, Andy Fitts (bass), and Alex Westcoat (drums), will be playing the entire album on their fall tour. Please join us.
