Not to mention hosts a
punk-stuffed bill featuring Rollins, Thurston Moore, Off and Fucked Up.
By Fred Mills
While J Mascis proceeds apace with his solo tour in support
of his recent
Sub Pop album Several Shades of Why (read our interview with him here), the Mascis mothership, aka Dinosaur Jr, has
just announced a string of full-band dates for June that will have them
performing 1988’s Bug track-by-track.
It’s guaranteed to be quite a gathering of the punk tribes,
too: the bills will feature, variously, Fucked Up, Off and Thurston Moore as the opening acts, along
with Henry Rollins doing a spoken word set as well as interviewing Dino Jr.
Check the official website for the exact lineup each night.
And for genuinely hardcore fans who want to spring for plane
ticket: July 1 in London, as part of ATP’s Don’t Look Back series, the band
will also appear alongside the Flaming Lips (doing The Soft Bulletin) and Deerhoof (Milk Man).
