Dinosaur Jr. – Seemed Like The Thing To Do

not too surprisingly, indie rock’s elder statesmen Dinosaur Jr. are returning tonight to Los Angeles after two sold out shows at the Troubadour in June. they’re playing the House of Blues Sunset Strip, and the place will be lucky to still be standing after J., Lou and Murph finish plugging in those purple amps. i’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again. loudest fucking band in America. (My Bloody Valentine doesn’t count, they’re from the Old Country.)
i imagine at this point that the inside of J. Mascis’ ears sounds like the scene in Fight Club when Ed Norton gets done shooting a bullet through his mouth and there’s nothing but ringing while people mouth things to him and look worried…

before...
before…
...and after.
…and after.
