Dinosaur Jr. Roars Into the Jersey Shore

On a cold winter night in Asbury Park, alt rockers Dinosaur Jr. blew the roof off of The Stone Pony as they celebrated the 30th anniversary of their album Where You Been. This was by far the loudest show I have seen at the legendary venue, and the sold out crowd enjoyed every second of it. The band's signature sound was on full display, and J Mascis had one of the most impressive amplifier stacks I have seen on stage. The set included "What Else Is New", "Out There", "Get Me", and "Get Choppin" from Where You Been as well as "Freak Scene", "Little Fury Things", and fan favorite "Feel the Pain". They finished the night with a cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven". The night included a stellar opening set by New York City's own Das Damen, who recently reunited after more than 30 years.

Dinosaur Jr. brings their tour to Australia in February and return to the States for the Shaky Knees Festival in May.
