Announced: Dinosaur Jr.@Fulton 55

55-atlgFile this under awesome. Underground indie-rock Gods (I think that’s not too hyperbolic) Dinosaur Jr. will be in town April 13 at Fulton 55. The group was a major player in late ’80′s alternative rock scene, before disbanding in 1997 (they reunited in 2005).

I caught them at Lollapalooza when I was too young to know (or care). Too busy loving Soundgarden probably. My mom has a T-shirt she still wears.

No word on local support, but there are more than a few bands that would make great openers. At any rate, this kind of show is a coup for Fresno and should be packed. Looks like tickets are on sale now.

Never heard of them, but could be interesting…do they have any popular songs that the average person would know? What other bands would you compare their sound to?

DLR says:

better bring earplugs. J Mascis plays extremely loudly and goodly
