Dinosaur Jr. @ T5, 2012 (more by Gretchen Robinette)
Dino Jr.

The Julie Ruin had to drop off as headliners of the 2014 Village Voice 4Knots Music Festival , as singer Kathleen Hanna has had a lyme disease relapse. (Feel better, Kathleen!) The fest has announced their new headliner: Dinosaur Jr.  They'll join Those Darlins, Speedy Ortiz, Radkey, Viet Cong, Nude Beach, Juan Wauters and more TBA at South St. Seaport on July 12. That show is free and all ages.

Dinosaur Jr. will play NYC before that, headlining the free Converse Rubber Tracks show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 28 with Screaming Females and Creepoid. While free, all tickets have been claimed for that one. They were also part of last night's Fun Fun Fun Fest announcement (with Blood Brothers, Judas Priest, Mineral, Failure and many more).

In other news, Dino Jr. frontman J. Mascis is guesting with the band on Late Night with Seth Meyers all this week. The show airs weeknights at 12:30 AM on NBC.

Is murph playing drums again or is it still Kyle Spence?

Doesn't really matter either way, j/w.

One good band in a sea of overhyped, boring nonsense.

Murph is back, that was just a few shows last summer. Murph was at ATP in London back in December.

Dino Jr is getting stale, Lou needs to turn heel again... maybe have a steel cage match with J at Summerslam.

Kathleen Hanna getting Lyme Disease is the the best thing that's ever happened to Village Voice

Well that's a nice upgrade. Yay for lyme disease (sorry)

Maybe Rick McCollum got Lyme Disease too?

I wonder where the stage is going to be, as the Pier looks like a destruction site right now.

Last year was almost too crowded. The year before was chill. I hope this doesn't push it to that annoyingly crowded place.

^ really I thought Kurt Vile crowd was cool and comfortable...the Drake show was the real clusterfuck!

The real question is how loud are they gonna let J turn those amps up to? They go to 11.

They go to 11-thousand. No one's prepared.
