Buffalo Tom/Dinosaur Jr-11/25/16-HOB Boston

Postby earthdog70 » Sun Nov 27, 2016 6:15 pm

So shaking off the food coma of Turkey Day, I ventured out the next night to catch this show. First off was a quick stop at The Lower Depths for food and drink. Cool place down the street from the venue.

Buffalo Tom was supposed to start at 8. I think they came on around 8:20. Energetic set. Hilken Mancini (Fuzzy) came out during "Kitchen Door" and played some harp and sang back-up. J. Mascis came on towards the end and played on 2 songs, including a Galaxie 500 cover :shock: New album and deluxe version of "Let Me Come Over" coming in 2017. They are playing Boston Calling next May too if you want to plan a road trip now.

Dinosaur Jr came out fairly quickly. As loud as ever. They brought out a 2nd guitarist and drummer to mirror the 7" inch version of "The Wagon." Great set. I was pretty close up and noticed Lou plays in his socks. I think he actually keeps a back-up pair perched on his guitar stand. Hilarious!

I picked up the latest Dinosaur Jr on vinyl, didn't make it over to grab BT's new shirt, will have to grab next time. Here are setlists for both:

Always a great tap list at The Lower Depths. Usually, hit that place up before events in the Fenway area.

Glaring omissions from that Dinosaur Jr set:

Repulsion
Forget the Swan
Tarpit
Yeah We Know.
In a Jar
Raisans

Seeing that they are playing 'The Lung' is a treat.

Boston got the better setlist. I would've loved to hear "Mountain Man" and "Just Like Heaven."

I'm actually really tired of that Cure cover. I don't get it when bands/artists play the same cover for 20 years. I should have yelled at Lou to save it for Philly :lol:

Seeing Dino Jr. tonight at Irving Plaza. They can play whatever they want as far as I'm concerned....their records are all pretty fantastic (the only album I don't know is the next-to-most recent one - "I Bet on Sky").....the new album is excellent as well. They are a national treasure.

Easy Action is opening tonight....pretty cool opener. I guess John Brannon is in town since Negative Approach are playing Brooklyn on Friday.
