Dinosaur Jr./Lou Barlow, Chinese Stars tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 5:48 pm October 27, 2009

Tickets are still available for tonight’s Dinosaur Jr. show at Slowdown. I went the last time J. Mascis and Co. came through town, and can tell you it was plenty LOUD — which means it was plenty GOOD. How loud was it? “So loud that halfway through the set, I wondered what damage I was doing to my hearing (and I wore earplugs). I could feel my clothes rippling across my body, moved by the shockwaves of noise (think of the famous Maxell poster where the guy sits in front of a loudspeaker, holding onto the arms of his easy chair to keep from being blown backwards by the volume). Crazy, excessive, pure, necessary loudness.” Read the full review of that 2007 show here.

In case you’re wondering, the new Lou Barlow album, Goodnight Unknown, is plenty good, and the show would be worth $20 (or at least $12) just to see him. Also in tonight’s line-up is Aussie band Violent Soho (signed to Ecstatic Peace! Records, owned/operated by Thurston Moore). $20, starts at 9.

Also tonight, The Chinese Stars play at The Waiting Room with Sensitive Hearts. This is being billed as a “Goo Presents” event, which means Goo will be DJ-ing the show. $10, 9 p.m.
