    I’m suspicious of this because I doubt that J and Lou and Murph will have enough time to get together and practice and get things tight by then, but who knows,

    They probably aren’t going to practice for like weeks at a time. Probably only a few hours. Remember Watt learned the songs on a tape recorder before the tour. I wonder if Lou remembers most of the stuff, or how long it will take him to get it back. Drums are drums and I am sure Murph hasn’t forgotten too much.

    yeah I guess J will know the songs. I’m sure Murph will too. Practicing has never been a big issue for the band. I remember reading how they never practiced because Mike Johnson lived on the other side of the country. I think as long as someone can keep the beat J will play

    J’s played at the last couple SXSW, so it wouldn’t surprise me at all 8)

    Your right about that practice thing, think I remember an article awhile back, where J said he didn’t like to practice cause it cost to much…:mrgreen:

    you don’t have to tell me that. just tell me if I should go, and that will be enough of an answer.

    if you can afford going, you should do yourself a favor and go, even if they don’t play, lou is playing and a million other bands as well. do a search.

    all kinds of rumors out there, we can’t confirm anything so…fingers crossed 8)

    On the Merge bulletin board someone specifically asked about Dinosaur Jr & the answer was no. On a Swervedriver forum someone said J Mascis would perform a couple songs with Lou at SXSW…although no link to the info source was given. Hopefully we get some sort of confirmation but … 8)

    Merge thread on special guest @ SXSW

    ‘There is indeed a "special guest" listed on the Merge showcase.
    And it is indeed indeed a Merge band. A very popular one at that. Not Dinosaur Jr though, and not the Arcade Fire. But you are so close. ‘

    Swervedriver Dino Jr thread

    ‘Latest on the Dino reunion: Apparently J & Lou are doing 2 songs together at the end of Spoon’s set at the Merge at SXSW In case you fellers wanted to know.’

    If they do play, someone better record it and post it on freesofree the next day or else.
