Toronto Star: Nobody really thought this reunion would happen, but here we are nearly five years later and the Dino reunion is still a going concern. Did you think it was going to last this long or did you think you were signing up for one tour and that would be it?
Lou Barlow: I just really didn’t know. I guess I’d sort of assumed we’d do a lot of reunion shows and play old songs and that we wouldn’t necessarily do new records. It’s just been moving along the whole time. There’s just been a real momentum to it, and I haven’t spent a whole lot of time questioning it.
Kurt Vile & the Violators were the perfect opener for the full-on guitar assault that was Dinosaur Jr. at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night (1/16). The two bands went on to shred at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday, and then Dinosaur Jr. (this time with Jeffrey Lewis opening) hit Brooklyn Bowl tonight (1/18) for their third NYC show in three days.
