Dinosaur Jr.

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


If Beyond in 2007 was Dinosaur Jr.’s return to form, their latest album Farm is proof that this legendary band continues to deliver that which makes rock worth cranking to 11. At times wholly 70’s guitar-epic, at times perfect for sitting by a babbling brook with Joni and Neil, Farm encompasses Dinosaur Jr.’s signature palette – soaring and distorted guitar, unshakable hooks, honey-rich melodies – songs that get into your head and, bouncing around happily, stay there. In the original line-up – J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph – the current Farm-album continues the band’s march into rock greatness by making old ears smile and new ears bleed afresh. J Mascis was a strongly influential figure in the alternative rock movement of the 90’s. Kurt Cobain used to be a massive fan of the band and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth fame still is. This show is propelled by the unique energy of one of America’s greatest living rock bands hitting their stride…
