"Dinosaur Jr. has also announced plans to release their first ever DVD. This full length concert DVD, which will feature the band in its original line-up, was filmed at New York's legendary Irving Plaza in December 2005, and at other shows along the band's December tour. The DVD is being directed by Gold In Berlin, which is run by Mascis' own brother in-law, German filmmaker Phillip Virus. With unfettered access to this famously elusive band, fans can expect complete backstage access to Dinosaur Jr.'s recent reunion tour, one-on-one interviews, behind the scenes goings-on and a full set of performances of Dinosaur Jr. favorites. The DVD will be packed with bonus materials that any fan of the band - seasoned or brand new - will find thrilling and entertaining. Look for the DVD to be released in summer 2006."
