Dinosaur Jr. played Irving Plaza after Governors Ball (pics); Heavy Blanket’s Union Pool show got shut down (too loud!)

After a thoroughly rained-on and mud-soaked Friday, Governor’s Ball headed to Irving Plaza for an after party with Dinosaur Jr. and Reignwolf. “WE ARE THE KINGS OF LEON,” proclaimed Lou Barlow, “AND THIS IS SEX ON FIRE,” apparently tickled that the platinum-selling band had to move their Governor’s Ball performance to Saturday because of the inclement weather. Dinosaur Jr., who took the stage at Irving around 1:15 AM, tore through a 17-song set at their usual preposterous volume.

The band, approaching the thirtieth anniversary of their formation, still rocks–harder than most. Legendary guitarist (and possible wizard) J. Mascis has had a busy few days. The band played two sets on Friday, one in the rain, and on Saturday, one of Mascis’ other bands, Heavy Blanket, played a free afternoon Summer Thunder show at Union Pool that BV presented and got shut down after 15 minutes for being too damn loud.

Hopefully, Dinosaur Jr. will be coming around again soon. They’ve already played both Bug (1988) and You’re Living All Over Me (1987) in their entirety. I’m holding out for a tour on Green Mind. Until then, more pictures from Irving Plaza, including one of Dinosaur Jr’s setlist, are below.
