Low at Saki Records on 3.07.2013
Low

Last night (Thursday, March 7), Duluth, Minnesota’s great Low journeyed to Chicago to performed stripped down selections from their forthcoming, Jeff Tweedy-produced LP The Invisible Way, and to hold a moderated Q&A session with the producer. Saki’s a great sounding room and “stripped down” was a funny thing to see listed for the event, as Low came off as full as ever. The trio mixed it up a bit throughout their short set, but we got to hear many brand new songs. The Q&A with Tweedy was full of wit and charm, especially from guitarist Alan Sparhawk. On accepting the term slowcore, which Sparhawk stated was coined by a friend of his after one of their first shows, he quipped, “It’s kinda nice, because in one word you know if it’s like Motörhead or not.” Tweedy was quite the comedian himself, but in all seriousness, they touched on how much of a pleasure it was to work on this album together.

Low will be back in Chicago on March 22 to headline Metro with support from Geoff Farina. Advance tickets are still available. More pictures from their in-store // Q&A session at Saki last night are below…
