Dinosaur Jr. Tours Throughout November

The crowd for last week’s sold-out Dinosaur Jr. show at Black Cat in Washington, DC was one of the most diverse audiences I’ve seen at a rock show in some time, especially with regard to age. From young teens to mid-lifers, the variety of faces in the crowd testified to the unique appeal Dinosaur Jr. offers in a fragmented music industry. The band’s discography spans 27 years, an age acknowledged in urban legend as the time at which rock icons are destined to expire. But if the current tour and latest album I Bet on Sky are reliable indications, then Dinosaur Jr. shows no sign of slowing. The band is on tour throughout the month of November.

Even seeing your favorite band can sometimes get monotonous over the course of a three hour set. But when each song features a legendary guest you may not have seen since the 90's, there's no choice but to surrender your full attention.

While the point of Dinosaur Jr. is to pummel the listener with as much feedback and distortion as possible, to eardrum-bleeding levels, Chocomel Daze (Live 1987) is a bit of a disappointment considering the middling source of the recording.

Don't call it just a comeback, because Dinosaur Jr. proves yet again on I Bet on Sky that you can do what you do best even better.
