My best friend in college wanted to get married after he heard his first dose of jangly goodness from UK post-punkers the Wedding Present in those hazy, golden times of college radio. He didn't want to get married to me, mind you, but to the band. Frontman David Gedge inspires that kind of fervent devotion with his lovesick oeuvre, scathing breakup rants, and beautifully poppy guitar mash notes. For this show, along with jamming out new tunes from just-released album Valentina, the Wedding Present will be playing the entirety of their seminal wall of guitar, the excellent 1991 album Seamonsters. Wedding Present fans are a lovelorn lot, wearing bleeding hearts on flannel sleeves—but a riotous show by Gedge & Co. is a gift that just keeps on giving even two decades after love at first listen.
