Dinosaur Jr., 9/3/2007

Earlier this year, around the time I stopped posting, I got to see the reunited Dinosaur Jr. perform at Webster Hall. It was sponsored by Camel, who put up lights and displays and handed out cigarettes despite New York being smoke-free. They had a spin-art table and a place to take zany photos. None of this convinced me to take up smoking. Nevertheless, the band sounded great. Lou Barlow seemed agitated in a good way and J. Mascis was his usual laconic, bored self. Perfect for "Freak Scene." Oh yeah, Dr. Dog played, too. They were anything but memorable.
