Dinosaur Jr @ Summerstage - July 14, 2005 (more)
Dinosaur Jr

When Dinosaur Jr. announced that they were reuniting and playing a show at Central Park Summerstage in 2005, many (myself included) didn't think twice about coming up with the $50 needed for a single ticket. What we didn't know then was that J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph would keep that reunion going strong. Not only did they release new albums in 2007 and 2009 ("Farm" is due out June 23), but they played a zillion more live shows in NYC and elsewhere since 2005, and will probably play a zillion more including the upcoming (and now sold out) show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 25th (ticket price = $25), AND including August 16th, 2009 at Central Park Summerstage (the show previously marked "TBA" on the schedule), but this time the show is FREE.

Broken Social Scene opened in 2005. The Walkmen are opening in 2009. All tour dates below...

"curious...has they released anything significant since the 90's? "

Is 2 albums in the past 2 years considered significant?

They're giving out free Walkmen? Sony still makes those?

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2009 1:01 PM

the sad part of this show is that The Walkman are bigger has beens than Dinosaur Jr (who are not has beens at all).

Posted by jan janson | May 26, 2009 1:07 PM

man, TBA got bumped AGAIN! that's bullshit!!! i'm never gonna get a chance to see them.

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2009 1:07 PM

HOLY SHIT! This is the show to match last years free Sonic Youth show!

the walkmen aren't has beens. they're slowly sinking into their niche, and their fans with patience have found probably one of the most rewarding and amazing bands of the modern way. the walkmen are mindblowing.

Farm leaked...
it rules hard

Posted by Anonymous | June 5, 2009 12:48 PM

dinosaur jr continues to rule as hard as they did when they first started. this band rules. cant wait for the central park show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2009 8:37 AM

Loser would be the word for you hipster scum

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2009 12:49 PM

anyone have an idea as to when would be too late to show up?

"anyone have an idea as to when would be too late to show up?"

anytime after August 17th, probably. just a guess though.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2009 1:24 PM

@ 12:49 - don't worry, less bitchin'n'moanin' people we have there, the better.

i haven't seen dino jr. since '07, but they still had it then. i can see a hip-stuh coming "just for the walkmen" though. aren't saviours playing? are they still even around?

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 3:41 PM

seems like it's gonna be a nice, hot day on Sunday (finally!) i've been waiting for this show all summer.

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 3:57 PM

Can't wait. This should at least be the free show of the summer.

Posted by wembley | August 14, 2009 4:06 PM

"i've been waiting for this show all summer."

All summer? Do you realize that Dino Jr played not too long ago? Where have you been all summer? They played not even two months ago.

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 4:07 PM


how many people are allowed into these free summer stage shows. do you have to show up super early to get in? thnks.

ya, and i was at music hall too... but Dino and The Walkmen for free = WIN

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 5:45 PM

"Dino and The Walkmen for free = WIN"

Actually, free shows are never the best ones. Free shows attract the scenesters, the kids that are just there because it's free, not because of the music. Pretty much the same people that download albums. Paid shows are better because the real fans show up. That said, Dino Jr will rip on Sunday.

see... i read the comments and every time i do i wonder ... why? why am i reading this? tell me... what is authentic and real to you? what is it you really, really want.. because all i hear is "bullshit, bullshit, bullshit"

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 11:46 PM

Loved this band forevr. I will be there tomorrow with bells on. As for the people calling dinosaur jr. boring, open your ears!
