Out in LA with Dino right now. Did two shows over the weekend, at Detroit in Costa Mesa and The Casbah in San Diego. The band is playing a bunch of songs from Farm and they sound great. Monday and Tuesday are gigs at the Troubador.
Make sure you go out and buy the new Dinosaur Jr album next Tuesday. It is a great album, as good as anything they have done. There is a limited edition 2 cd version with a lot of extra stuff. Buy that one! You won't regret it.
Just got back from a UK trip with Dino. They played shows in London and Derby. The London show was part of the Mojo Magazine Honors Awards festivities. Both shows were great. J had to go old school in Derby and play with just three effects pedals. Sounded amazing of course!
I got to go with the band to the Mojo Awards presentation extravaganza. Pretty cool, lots of heavy weights there. Jeff Beck, Billy Gibbons, John Cale, Mott The Hoople, Joe Elliot and more. The food was even pretty good.
