The 2007 Show of the Year: Dinosaur Jr at Slowdown


I say with full confidence that whatever you may have thought was the best show of 2007, you will no doubt re-evaluate your position after tonight's Dinosaur Jr. show at Slowdown (tix here).

The original line-up of J. Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph are back and better than ever! If you heard their new "comeback" album, Beyond, you know that the band was easily able to re-capture the sound, energy, and excitement of the first three albums from the late 80s. There's really not much more that I can say. If you miss this show, then you suck. That's all there is. Dinosaur Jr. drew the blueprint for modern day indie rock, and they still do it better than almost anyone else. This is a rare opportunity. Do Not Miss This Show!

To get yourself ready, here is the video for 1988's "Freak Scene":

I would love to see these guys... I used to have a copy of Green Mind a long time ago (I think that's what it was called) and I was greatly impressed with Mascis' guitar-playing. I need to check out a bunch of their other stuff.
