Dinosaur Jr

Following J Mascis's current solo tour, Dinosaur Jr will hit the road for a select group of East Coast dates in June. These won't be your average Dinosaur Jr. shows though, because.... like they're doing for ATP in London in June, the band will perform Bug in its entirety. PLUS, Off! will open every show AND Henry Rollins will interview Dinosaur Jr. live at every show (Keith Morris and Henry Rollins both on the bill), AND at the NYC show which is happening June 23rd at Terminal 5, Fucked Up will also play an opening set.

Tickets for the four dates Off! are playing are currently on fan presale, and tickets go on regular sale on 4/8. Oh, and the short tour kicks off on June 21st at Calvin Theatre in Northampton, MA where Thurston Moore is also playing (but Off! is not). Proceeds from that first show will benefit Whole Children.

In related news, J Mascis recenly played a BV Day Party at Swan Dive followed by two NYC shows (he was also interviewed by Ted Leo), and Mike Hill of Tombs interviewed Henry Rollins for this website. Off! was just in town with Trash Talk and played Santos Party House.

All dates below...

i'm an LCD fanboy and I love Dinosaur Jr... shut up

3:59, I think you're missing the overall point. Whatever though, this show is gonna destroy! Have fun man!

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 4:01 PM

what's the point?

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 4:02 PM

FINALLY a show where LCD and Strokes pussy boy wannabees are gonna show up and we can get down to some serious suplex + pussy slap + almighty headlock action. I love slapping pussies silly almost as much as I love chili dogs (which T5 has an ample supply of too).
It's gonna be an EPIC NIGHT!

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 4:02 PM

It will be awesome but not as awesome as LCD!!!

And will Frohawk be there???!!!

"what's the point?"

There is none. It's just something that people would say to sound "above" you. Nevermind that nonsense.

ugh... T5. At least I don't live in Philly. Electric Factory is one of the only venues I've been to that's WORSE than T5.

I saw D Jr in 1993 (? or thereabouts).
Bring your ear plugs and butt plugs, ladies. Shit's gonna be LOUD!

4:07 (1) - you should definitely stay home. If I'm at the show, and I end up standing next to you and you're talking shit about T5, I'm gonna elbow you to the face, boooyeeeee!

frohawk will be there - he is at every show - I have seen at quite a few shows

Bug is only like 30 minutes long so hopefully they'll play it two or three times.

4:04 has been told numerous times that he's "missing the overall point."

The Rollins thing is a little weird. Rather they take questions from the audience a la Shellac.

Hey 4:17, have you been to a Dinosaur show?

If they play 30 minutes, it is pretty long. I remember 20 minutes gigs back in the day

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 5:19 PM

30 minutes is the new 20 minutes

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 5:22 PM

No disrespect but OFF! are bigger than Fucked Up now? Seriously? Didn't Fucked Up like, curate their own goddamn hardcore festival in Toronto 1 or 2 years ago?

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 5:25 PM

Dinosaur Jr. play a lot more than 30 minutes these days, they'll definitely do a few more than just Bug.

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 5:26 PM

4:09... I've seen Dinosaur at T5 twice before... and they were both great shows. But that place still sucks.

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 5:26 PM

Dino Jr have NEVER played a 20 min set that you were there to see! Fuckin trashface!

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 5:26 PM

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 6:04 PM

I finally made it to T5 last Thursday.

As an unbiased out-of-towner, the venue truly was as bad as everyone says it is.
I can imagine it being slightly better for a less crowded show, but damn, what a mess that place was Thursday.

Back to the current topic, hope they bring this Dino tour out west, I love that album.

Posted by Kyle | April 4, 2011 6:12 PM

I think if we can get Fabrizio in Terminal 5 for about 20 minutes, that will give us enough time to burn it down. kill 2 birds...

FAIR WARNING: WILL MOSH/CIRCLE PIT/STAGE DIVE during Fucked Up and Off!

T5 ruined it for me. what a shame

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 6:59 PM

two black flag singers? henry better play at least one song at this thing...

the electric factory isnt.... too bad. it depends whose playng. a simple rock group like the stooges sounded great, something more synth-heavy like animal collective or of montreal sounded like shit. the troc would have been better, honestly.

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2011 7:40 PM

Dino Jr? Awesome.
Bug? Not my favorite album, but still good.
Off!? Great.
Fucked Up? More awesomeness.
Rollins? Meh.

Terminal 5? Pass. Not going to that shithole.

Sebadoh is better

Posted by lou | April 4, 2011 7:53 PM

7:48 just distilled all the hipster bullshit into 27 perfect, economical poetic words in the perfect order. Like "Old Man And The Sea" of BV posts.

27 words = 3 x 3 x 3
the perfect ratio

I am humbled and amazed.
Bravo my good man.
Have some hummus.

If you have never seen a bear go over the mountains, you have never seen the job reduced to its essentials. Of course, deer are faster, but not going straight uphill. Not even elk have the power in their hindquarters. Deer and elk zagging and switchback and stop and pose while really catching their breath. The bear leaves the earth like a bolt of lightning retrieving itself and making its thunder backwards.

you keep it up, Sheila, keep making an ass of yourself. Bitching about everything. Your life is pathetic.

terminal 5 sucks when a show is ridiculously sold out and oversold, but this show won't be. guarantee you, you'll still be able to buy tickets on ticketmaster day of. this show will be awesome

I wouldn't see Dinosaur Jr at terminal 5 for free

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 11:03 AM

I saw them with SY at T5 and it sucked but with Fucked Up!, Off! and Rollins I'm gonna have to make an exception. I think the key with T5 is to get there early and get close otherwise it's a shit time.

Posted by wingwalker77 | April 5, 2011 11:15 AM

They keep booking great shows there, obviously T5 is WINNING

Hundreds of guys depended on Paulie and he got a piece of everything they made. It was tribute, just like the old country, except they were doing it in America. All they got from Paulie was protection from other guys looking to rip them off. That's what it's all about. That's what the FBI can neverunderstand, that what Paulie and the organization does is offer protection for people who can't go to the cops. They're like the police department for wiseguys.
