Introspective indie rock singer-songwriter David Bazan, best known as the frontman for Pedro the Lion and Headphones, will headline Rough Trade NYC at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9 with special guest Michael Nau.
David Bazan is on the road showcasing material from his fourth full-length, Care, which was released worldwide back in March. The 10-track album, which features the title track “Care,” was produced by Bazan and musician Richard Swift at his studio National Freedom in Oregon.
Curse Your Branches, Bazan’s studio debut, emerged in September 2009 on Barsuk Records. The critically acclaimed album hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart following its release. To coincide with the album’s release the musician put out covers of Bob Dylan’s “The Man in Me” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
Bazan’s latest musical venture, a new band called Lo Tom, released its self-titled debut back in July. The band features three of the singer-songwriter’s longtime friends, including two members of Starflyer 59.
Also on the bill is Michael Nau, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Maryland. The psych-folk and indie pop musician released his sophomore solo LP, Some Twist, back in June on Full Time Hobby and Suicide Squeeze. The album was preceded by its lead single “Good Thing.” Mowing, Nau’s debut album, dropped last year and included the single uplifting “Love Survive.”
