Dinosaur Jr. and other things

My Thursday write-ups, including Dinosaur Jr., are up now at PopMatters. Read all about two days ago here.

Also, my review of the Red Red Meat reissue Bunny Gets Paid, which I highly, highly recommend to anyone who likes Califone but hasn't dug back into the Red Red Meat, ran yesterday at Dusted.

I had a very slow start yesterday, only saw one band, really, before dinner. It was Wild Beasts, who sound very strange in broad daylight...more of a 3 in the morning kind of band. I went to the Yard Dog, where Bloodshot was holding sway but spent the whole time talking to Dave DeCastro (from Steve Wynn's band, who is now backing up Amy Speace) and Fred Mills from Blurt, while, I think, the Meat Purveyors were on stage. So it was really all about the night shows, mostly at the WFMU showcase at Spiro's, with one quick trip over to Flamingo Cantina to see Mi Ami (damn, go see this band). I couldn't get into see the Sonics, but I went to Emo's later and bought a tee-shirt for my husband and the singer signed it for me.
