J & Henry
Henry Rollins & Dinosaur Jr.

Off!, lead by former Circle Jerks/Black Flag frontman Keith Morris, kicked off night four of Dinosaur Jr's Bug tour at Terminal 5 last night (6/23). Keith prefaced the show with an introduction of Off!'s veteran lineup that includes Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless/Hot Snakes/Rocket From the Crypt) and Steven McDonald

(Redd Kross). Off! launched directly into album opener "Black Thoughts" and immediately met and exceeded the expectations set by the impressive lineup. With some of the crispest tones and sharpest hits, the band thrashed along ruthlessly as they pummeled through minute-long blasts, which acted as the perfect backdrop for Keith's piercing screams and powerful on-stage force. Despite the fact that the large venue was only about half-full at this point, Off! delivered as if the room was packed. Keith Morris, with Black Flag's Nervous Breakdown EP and a long stint in Circle Jerks under his belt, had every right to act like he knew he was a legend, but instead he modestly expressed how grateful he was for the people that came out early to catch their set.

Keith and band
Off

Though Off! were certainly a difficult to act to follow, Fucked Up took a stab at it with almost the exact opposite approach to punk. While Off!'s songs rarely reach the 2-minute mark, Fucked Up's usually double or triple it, and explore much artier territories. Their set consisted mainly of material off their recent epic David Comes to Life, and though the set wasn't especially long, they hit most of the album's high points. Fucked Up played as hard as ever, and the new songs really pulled through live. The only downside was the size of the venue. Damian's usual antics, like going into the crowd and holding the mic out over the audience work well in smaller clubs, but if you weren't in the first few rows at Terminal 5, it came off less successfully than the band deserved. Things should be a little better at 285 Kent on Saturday night.

Before Dinosaur Jr. took the stage, Henry Rollins (aka the second Black Flag frontman on stage that night) conducted a much-anticipated interview with the band. Henry was a great person to interview Dinosaur Jr. Not only is he arguably the best speaker in punk rock, but the admiration between Dinosaur Jr. and Henry Rollins for each other was so clear. Henry opened his interview by telling us he is a "XXXL Dinosaur Jr. fan," and during the interview, when asked which live shows were influential on them, Murph mentioned Black Flag. In the interview they discussed things like how Dino got their start, the independent music industry, Husker Du (whose frontman Bob Mould should have been at Terminal 5 instead of 92YTribeca), Lou's departure from the band, and other related topics.

Dinosaur Jr.

After the interview concluded, the members of Dinosaur Jr. left the stage shortly before returning to play Bug in its entirety. J Mascis began the show by saying, "We opened the other night with 'Freak Scene' and it was kinda weird so we're gonna play 2 songs that aren't on Bug first." The band quickly jolted through "In a Jar" and "The Wagon" before taking on their 9-track masterpiece Bug. The opening chords of "Freak Scene" rang throughout Terminal 5 as the crowd responded with cheers of admiration for the album's powerful opener. In typical Dinosaur Jr. fashion, J. Mascis stayed virtually still for the majority of the set, even when ripping through noisy, intricate solos, as Lou Barlow was bashing around stage. Though "Freak Scene" is by and large the album standout, some of the most exciting moments of the show came later on in the set. The band's energy on "Yeah We Know" and "Budge" was especially dead on. For the album closer, "Don't," Lou admitted that he had blown his voice out screaming the song on the first night of the tour so he invited a friend up to perform vocals. Dino turned the song into an extended jam as their guest vocalist writhed on stage and executed a frenzied rendition of Lou's screams on the track. Same story, same special guest at the Northampton show.

After the jammed out track subsided and Bug was over, the band performed an encore with three more tracks. The last one, a cover of "Chunks" by Last Rights, invited Fucked Up's Damian Abraham out to perform lead vocals. Once starting the song, it only took Damian a few seconds to end up back in the crowd, and for their guest vocalist who had performed on "Don't" to run back on stage, grab J's mic, and join Damian in the song. After the encore and much praise for the band from Damian, Dinosaur Jr. left the stage again, putting an end to a truly unforgettable night.

Dino Jr. was great but people were so rude and obnoxious during the interview. People throwing shit onstage and henry and the band, yelling things out such as "shut the fuck up and play music", etc. This interview was advertised as part of this show from the beginning, if you don't want to see it don't show up or show up after its over. Don't be a dick and disrespect the band.

why did Rollins interview Mascis? i could see people getting impatient and wanting the bands to just play. Rollins can be a douche so they should just get rid of him and let the bands do their thing.

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 4:05 PM

Yeah, some idjit threw both his shoes @ Rollins during the interview and then walked up to the railing to get them back. Henry was all, "Now you know what I look like and I know what you look like. You can retrieve your shoes after the show. From me. See you soon my besocked friend." or something like that. Pretty funny.

Also, from my safe vantage point up on the second balcony I could see there were some non-punk rock (Hot Topic) looking girls slam dancing super hard and with reckless abandon for both FU and Dino, one blonde girl in particular. Awesome. You totally rule.

I don't get the whole boycott Bowery thing... they were a small independent company and eventually got really successful and expanded...Were you complaining when they just had Mercury Lounge and Bowery Ballroom and were booking some of the biggest acts in "indie" before anyone else?

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 4:21 PM

3:36 You're a total moron if you think it is "just music". Punk rock has a very strong political culture and many of the artists on the stage identify themselves with that community yet still decided to play a show for Bowery who on a NYC level make Live Nation look like a nonprofit charitable organization.

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 4:26 PM

I need to get the workout regimen of Fucked Up's drummer. His arms look great. You don't see many "indie" bands with members who care about their health and fitness, but then again Damian kinda negates that for Fucked Up.

4:26 where should a band as popular as Dinosaur Jr play in New York that's not a Bowery Presents venue?

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 4:40 PM

4:21- maybe I can help you out here. I think the Bowery Presents hate started when they became big. They went from an original plan of being the opposite of Live Nation with the idea of catering to the music lover with good original booking and inexpensive tickets at self made amazing sounding venues

With their growth that stopped. From opening an already made shit venue(Terminal 5)not made for concerts to hiring non creative idiots to "book" bands and basically only caring about fattening their wallets and telling the fan to go fuck themselves

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 4:40 PM

4:40's assessment of Bowery Present's decline is accurate. Terminal 5 was the nail in the coffin.

4:40: Irving Plaza

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 4:54 PM

To add to 4:40's comments, one particular practice that they're notorious for for their larger venue shows, is that they hold back more than half of the house, see if they can sell them on the secondary market, and then dump the leftovers back to the fans on the night of the show. All promoters do that, but they seem to be much worse about it. Perfect examples of this were the LCD and Strokes shows at the Garden.

Whah whah Bowery Presents whah

This whole hate bullshit was no doubt started from one dour asshole that got turned down for a job or gig from Bowery Presents, and now he's made it his life's mission to just bitch about a company delivery the goods for a legitimate market need. Oh, and all you fucking sheep are too stupid that you are being played. Where the fuck is the legitimate alternative to Bowery Presents to bring big names to NYC ... MSG and the Dolans?

And as for punk rock having a political commitment to feeding the homeless and rescuing battered women .... you obviously were not there when the shit was really going down in the late 70s / early 80s, so really stop writing about shit you know nothing about.

Off, FU, and Dino Jr. all slayed. Rollins was NOT interesting. "What bands influenced your sound?" "What shows did you see in NYC that were memorable?" Did Rollins get a 10 year old to write these? I thought he was supposed to be introspective. And the bullshit tirade to the shoe thrower was the lamest attempt at being witty I have probably ever heard.

4:40 Newsflash. Shows happened in NYC prior to Terminal 5 and Bowery. Roseland or Nokia would even have been more honorable to be honest.

Bowery has business practices such as calling the cops on DIY loft shows and threatening to blacklist artists who don't play their games. They also have gone as far as controlling the music media in New York with one of their talent buyers penning the music blog for NBC.

You don't see a problem with a growing monopoly that controls who plays where and when that is not so slowly taking over every major market on the east coast?
You're sheep.

6:16, I was 4:40 but i think you were directing your vitriol to 5:17. You know, the brain dead moron who thinks the Bowery hate is just one guy. Actually 5:17 is probably one of their employees.

Just to add though I am well aware there were plenty of shows here before Bowery Or Terminal 5. That has nothing to do with the conversation frankly.

I've tried and I just can't seem to get my mind around why the same old complaining happens on this site, for like every stupid thread, about shit that has nothing to do with the subject of the thread (the performance, the release, etc.). Same old shit about Terminal 5, Bowery Presents, etc. From the sight of these pictures, it looks like a majority of people attending this show were enjoying themselves, and some may have even come on this site to share their excitement, and they find a few people spiting and pissing all over the place. I honestly think that there are really a small number that do this, every thread, and I just feel so repulsed by them. If your life is so devoid of joy, you should really find an outlet to allow you to get healthy and stop trying to bring everyone else down. For real - let it go, at least on here. Some of us want to share the love. Go start another blog where you can just bitch all the time, see how that works out for you.

The show was at Terminal 5 schmuck so discussing the venue is perfectly reasonable As long as there are shows there then you can expect bitching. Notice how any reviews of shows at Bowery Ballroom elicit basically no negative comments about the venue. A crappy venue is gonna get slammed. Deal with it or you go somewhere else to get news fucko.

As some one who has attended shows in the punk/hardcore scene for more than 20 years I find it humorous when an obvious newbie is lecturing people on the purity, or lack thereof, of bands in the scene. It started in Maximum Rock and Roll and continues today. The thing is, they think they are saying something new.

So if any of these bands really cared about the punk scene, they'd have built a 3,000 punk rock venue, charged the kids $5 each and then burned it down?

What was up with the guest singer sticking the microphone into his mouth?

What I knew about Terminal 5 before I went to this show was gleaned solely from all the pissing and moaning about it in comments on Brooklyn Vegan. I therefore expected pure shit, but the sound was fine, the security weren't dicks, and the sightlines were perfectly good (I'm 5' 11", hardly a giant). The only conclusion I can draw from this is that many people who post on Brooklyn Vegan are just miserable, moaning sods who are incapable of having a good time.

The only conclusion i can come up with about Lemmy is that he is a BP plant or just an idiot with no concept of what a good venue is.

Lemmy FTW MY ASS

6:41- Who the fuck are you kidding? Your balls didn't even drop 20 years ago, if you were even born. Guess I hit a nerve. Your "revolution" has been marketed very well to you.

I like Dinosaur Jr.'s music. And F'd Up and OFF were great. And I had fun at this show. It's not my favorite venue, but it's not the worst either.

The End!

Great to hear the deep cuts from Bug live.

Was hoping Dino would play "I've Got Cum!" as the closer, but I was disappointed YET AGAIN!!!

My distaste for the Bowery prsents started when their bouncers beat up Todd P for passing out some flyewrs outside on the sidewalk, and the paid-off cops wouldn't do a thing.
