    Top-notch show last night, with a packed house and a very enthusiastic crowd. There was one surprise in the set list — I Don’t Want to Go There, which sounded EXCELLENT. Otherwise, it was strictly oldies, but played with a lot of force:

    In A Jar
    Repulsion
    Back to Your Heart
    (from here I think it’s out of order)
    I Don’t Want to Go There
    Little Fury Things
    Out There
    Feel the Pain
    Crumble
    Pick Me Up
    Forget the Swan
    Kracked
    Sludge

    Freak
    Chunks

    I think that’s all. Lou and Murph seemed in high spirits, while J looked like he might’ve had a cold, though his singing was unusually good and he played the hell out of his guitar. The sound, as people have noted about other shows on this tour, was superb.

    Figured out that last night was my 28th Dino/Fog show (spread out over 20 years). No wonder my ears ring all the time.

    Not sure why it cut off, but you get the idea.

    I’m living in Chicago now, having luckily scored a tenure-track job after my postdoc in CA. So long as I keep getting stuff published, avoid brutalizing my students, and don’t piss off my colleagues, I’ll be here to stay.

    Then, once I get tenure, I can start brutalizing my students and pissing off my colleagues…..

    Kidding. Sort of.

    That is awesome that you have seen J Mascis related shows 28 times. How does this rank among those 28?

    It was definitely above-average, though the band has been consistently great all through the reunion. I’ve never seen J play a "bad" show, though some performances have been more or less inspired. All their playing seemed pretty inspired last night.

    Can’t wait until they come back through with a set full of new material!

    June 23 feels like a long way off…….

    I’m midway through the video evidence… and I have one thing to say. I have newfound faith in "I Don’t Wanna Go There", all of a sudden its magicka just smashed me to bits. Bring on Farm, I’m almost ready… thanks for filming it, whoever did. And may Dino debut some more songs on tour, because June 23rd feels even more away now, and I’m sure that the 10 cuts we don’t know are gonna be pretty unbelievably great too…

    Band was tight and sounded brilliant. My favs of the night were: "Out There" and "I Don’t Wanna Go There"

    I thought you were still in CA….huh? Yes, we know all about the tenure situation because we live in a college town. Many folks come and go…One of my closest friends got a sweet tenure-track job in PA…in State College, so we had to say our goodbyes. That’s always hard, had a couple from Colombia that we loved, she was teaching here for just a few years and then we had to say our goodbyes. You know. Nice poster up above with the apple and all. Also I like the word "Magicka" from above. I’m gonna watch that little clip and then head for bed.

    Oh, I forgot to say Congratulations Tubby, it’s great to score a job like that. I’m sure your students will love you.

    Hello all, I’m new here. I’m the one that posted that clip on youtube. I was pumped they played IDWGT live, unfortunately that’s all I captured on video. I snapped a few pics as well, nothing as good as the previous poster though. Thank you for those! While my friend was at the merch booth he overheard a conversation that the new album would be a double album. Was news to me, but maybe not everyone. haha
