Dinosaur Jr + King Buzzo of the Melvins

1005 Main St, Pawtucket, RI   (view map)

J, Lou, and Murph are still roaming the earth as Dinosaur Jr and far from extinct 30 years on. The tumultuous split between J Mascis and Lou Barlow in 1997 is well-documented, but their 2005 reformation has yielded three ferocious albums. The scraggly and cracked vocals of Mascis and his deafening guitar solos remain intact, along with Barlow’s bouncing low end rumbling. Their brand of “earbleed country music” is no joke in the live setting (bring earplugs — seriously), evidenced by the wall of Marshall stacks flanking Mascis. The band will shred through plenty of oldies, as well as post-Barlow/Mike Johnson-era classics like “Out There” and “Feel the Pain.” King Buzzo of the Melvins will ease us in with an acoustic set, and Mary Halvorson opens the all ages show around 9 pm at the Met, 1005 Main St, Pawtucket | $25 | 401.729.1005 |
