Dinosaur Jr August 16th, 09

A hot day for some free rock. This Sunday, Summer Stage had one of their free events. Get to these early or be kept waiting outside for the gates to reopen. Be sure to check you're skateboards at the door. Dinosaur Jr is one of the most influential alternative rock bands. They play hard riffs and make a big sound, that's why we call them "Power Trios." These boys from Amherst Mass. have used reverb, and space noise for years. Its easy to see the connection from Neil Young, to Dino. Jr., to Sonic Youth and so on. This reunion of the original 1984 group has been going strong with lots of northeast shows left on this tour. Also look out for the Pixies this fall.
Set list:
want you to know
been there
in a jar
out there
over it
feel pain
don't wanna go
