DINOSAUR JR. (USA)
Guests: Straightjacket Nation + White Walls
Having completed a sold out solo east coast tour earlier this year, J Mascis returns to Australia in 2013 for a national tour, this time with pals, drummer Murph and bassist Lou Barlow, as they prepare once again to give listeners a dose of the live aural-onslaught that is Dinosaur Jr. The tour comes off the back of ‘I Bet On Sky’, the third album to be released by the iconic trio since their unlikely reformation in 2005. And like its post-2005 predecessors, ‘Farm’ and ‘Beyond’, the new album is yet another critical and fan-favourite, and continues the phoenix-like rise of these alt-rock superheroes. Meredith’s Golden Plains Festival organisers were the first to offer Dinosaur Jr an invite – a repeat performance following a stand-out show at the same event in 2010. Watch the video for the lead single from ‘I Bet On Sky’, ‘Watch The Corners’, here.
