The Folk Implosion

The Government Center


Tickets -

The Folk Implosion (Lou Barlow & John Davis) back after a thirty year hiatus, stop by the Government Center in Pittsburgh for a rare performance. There will be an opening set from John, and opening set from Lou, then the Folk Implosion.

How the fuck are we going to turn this into a song?” That’s the question Lou Barlow and John Davis have asked themselves since co-founding the Folk Implosion in the early 1990s. Beginning with improvised jams featuring Barlow on bass and Davis on drums, the duo develop their beat-driven pop collages from the ground up. It’s the process they used on their debut cassette, Walk Through This World with the Folk Implosion, and one they’ve returned to 30 years later on their spellbinding, self-referencing reunion, Walk Thru Me.

Music starts at 7:30
