Dinosaur Jr. Tickets
Dinosaur Jr. is an American alternative rock band. They were formed as Dinosaur in 1983 in Amherst, Massachusetts by J Mascis (guitar and vocals) and his high school classmate Lou Barlow (bass guitar). Shortly afterwards, Murph (Emmett Patrick Murphy, drums) joined them. They changed their name following the release of their debut, Dinosaur (1985), due to another band called The Dinosaurs.
In 1987, Dinosaur Jr. signed to SST Records and with them they released what is often considered their best album, You're Living All Over Me (1987), as well as Bug (1988). They never had much commercial success, but gained something of a cult following and became known for their very loud concerts. They were championed by Sonic Youth, who helped them get signed to SST. Dinosaur Jr.'s songs were melodic, fairly simply structured and covered in guitar noise.
These first albums were a major influence on the up-and-coming band Nirvana, and were on par with Dinosaur Jr.'s contemporaries the Pixies.
Tensions ran high between Mascis and Barlow, and in 1989 Barlow left the band, continuing to work with his own band, Sebadoh. Mascis has also continued to release albums under his new band J Mascis and the Fog.
In 2004, Mascis regained the master rights to the first three Dinosaur Jr. albums from SST, and arranged for their reissue in early 2005. The reissues coincided with the announcement that the original lineup of Mascis, Barlow and Murph was reuniting for a summer tour.
2007 will see the continuation of the Dinosaur Jr. reunion tour, as well as the band's first DVD release and a new album. The new album will be Lou Barlow's first recording with the band since 1989.
