Lou Barlow of Sebadoh stars in The Get Up Kids’ new music video for “Lou Barlow” from their first new album in eight years, Problems (Polyvinyl Record Co.), released earlier in 2019. Directed by Kerstin Ebert and filmed at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, the meta humorous new video arrives as the band begins their fall headline U.S. tour tonight at Denver’s Oriental Theatre (Kevin Devine and The Whiffs support the November dates, Hembree and Sontalk support the December dates).
Matt Pryor explains: “We kept joking how hilarious it would be if we could get Lou Barlow to be in the video for ‘Lou Barlow.’ It was absolute luck that we both happened to be in New York on the same day. When he agreed, we were thrilled. When we saw how much he put into the video, we were floored. He was amazing.”
Lou Barlow confirmed in an official statement: “I acted the shit out of that.”
