How often does an old legend return to the fold and sound as fresh as ever? Not often enough we say (insert name of your Great Band/Bad Album favorite here).
Dinosaur Jr. and their freshly released album have, surprisingly, been met with raves from critics and bloggers alike – and word on the interweb has it that their live show does not disappoint. The band has been focusing on their early catalog (which makes the most of having Lou Barlow on board) and they've been kicking it live with the great indie rock songs they're known for without relying on nostalgia.
A night at the Showbox with J. Mascis and Lou Barlow and a guy that might resemble a sweaty Michael Chiklis? Not bad at all.
