"This seems weirdly normal to me now," Lou Barlow told the crowd at Swansea, NH's Chesire Fairgrounds on Saturday night as fans honked their car horns in addition to applauding, hooting and hollering. "This seems like it should've happened a long time ago."
It was Dinosaur Jr's second socially distant, drive-in show of the weekend, following Friday night's show in Connecticut. Their NH setlist was similar to CT, but not identical, with classics like "Little Fury Things," "Feel the Pain," "The Wagon" (where J, Lou and Murph were joined by old pal John Moloney on a second drum kit), "Start Choppin," "Freak Scene," and their cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven." They also played "Training Ground" from J's old band Deep Wound.
Also like at the CT show, Dinosaur Jr played some new music. “We finished an album somehow during COVID times,” J Mascis said before launching into the first. “I guess it won’t come out for a little while, but we’re gonna play a couple songs." Those couple songs were "Long Time" and "The Garden," and you can watch video and listen to recordings of both from the NH show below.
