Greetings Dear Listener,
Last night was the brain melting experience that is Dinosaur Jr. It has been over twelve hours and my ears are still not right and they may never be again.
It was worth every minute. They even dusted off a Deep Wound song towards the end of the set.
The playlist for the broadcast is Dinosaur Jr. (and Dinosaur Jr. related) heavy but it takes time to get back to "normal" after seeing that band.
The only musical downer was the opening act. All I have to report is: the only Moog I care about played goal for the Bruins. Not my cup of tea. But then again, who am I on tour with? They must be doing something right.
Tonight will be the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion at the Rex and Saturday will be Submachine with their annual Halloween show at the 31st St. Pub.
The musical planets have aligned around this town for once. I should probably invest in a pair of earplugs.
Prepare yourselves for new Bad Brains and Forgetters next month. This is the year that keeps on giving. The only down side is if this year's releases were this abundant, will next year be lame? We will have to wait to find out.
I hope this finds you well.
Thanks for listening.
