I’ve been a fan of Dinosaur Jr. long enough in my life to recognize a very unique situation. Despite numerous ups and downs with the band members, Dinosaur Jr. has been putting out solid rock music for almost 30 years now. While it may not all be groundbreaking, it is all seriously quality music. I’ve spent quite a bit of time with the newest Dino Jr. record I Bet On Sky, and I spent the better part of Sunday listening to it along with their highest rated tracks on Spotify. The new record isn’t just a good record from some old school rockers, I Bet On Sky is a great record that really channels the best of what Dinosaur Jr. represents. I attached that same Spotify player that I listened to several times yesterday below, and you can also check out the video for the great single “Watch The Corners” below that.
Tonight you get a chance to see J. Mascis, Lou Barlow (again), and Murph over at Mercy Lounge making that magic come to life. I’m not sure who is opening, but things get started around 9pm. You can grab your tickets here. Get out and see some live music tonight!
