Dinosaur Jr. at the Commodore Ballroom
by Jamie Cessford

It’s my own fault that my introduction to Dinosaur Jr.’s live performance was on the heroic Bug tour in 2011. They played a perfect set on that December evening, performing tracks that even the most casual of Dinosaur Jr. fan could relate to (i.e. me).

Fortunately, a band as seasoned as Dinosaur Jr. can effortlessly integrate the new songs in with the old ones. continued...
