It was on a rainy Wednesday when the Tivoli in Utrecht got rocked out by Dinosaur Jr. Before they got on stage The Drones had to warm the audience up. Not sure if they got the audience with them but they sure rocked the place. The music is kind of weird if you’d ask me. A bit experimental and impulsive. Tough it was very energetic and powerful. I liked it in special kind of way. Not sure if I could listen to it at home but live it was pretty good.
Then after a short brake it was time for the ‘old’ rockers of Dinosaur Jr to get on stage. We saw Jay Mascis perform solo once before. He didn’t have much charm in his performance then. When he got up the stage this time it was about the same. Don’t think you get a show like you could expect from the modern bands. Dinosaur Jr is all about the music and the mystic that carries this band. But from the moment that the first song kicked in, it was all magic. The Tivoli got loaded with Dinosaur fans and you could see and feel the love they have for these legends.
This was one of the shows that are magical and special in its own way. I’m sure everybody enjoyed themselves. I want to thank BoEk for his help arranging the interview. Jos for his knowledge about Dinosaur Jr and with that helping us out with the interview. And ofcourse the bands itselves, The Drones and Dinosaur Jr, for their show, their words, their music and everything else they did! Thanks!!
