Mine would have to be in 96 i think when they opened for Neil Young.Im not sure what year it was but I also saw em with the Lolapolloza(sp?) and once again on tour their own tour.But the best one would have to be with Neil cuz it was outdoor and it sounded great and they played for a long time.Atleast an hour.BTW it was in Houston,Tx.And this was all in the same year.

March 3, 1992. The Avalon, Boston, MA. Touring behind "Whatever’s Cool with Me." For whatever reason, I remember thinking to myself all that day in school…"Man, would I love to hear "Tarpit"…but there’s NO WAY they’d ever play that…" And to my utter disbelief and simultaneous bliss, they OPENED with Tarpit, and proceeded to rip through a set list like I’ve never heard in the 7 Dinosaur shows I saw after that one. The Lung, No Bones, They Always Come, Freak Scene, the list just goes on. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that My Bloody Valentine opened for them on this unforgettably cold, rainy, and wonderful night in Boston. I don’t think that show will ever be topped in this lifetime.

1987 Maxwells, Hoboken N.J. – Serious snow storm, but braved the elements. Anyway during the last song of the night, RAISANS -Lou busted a bass string which cut his arm. They continued on throughout the song w/ Lou bleeding like a stuck pig. J kept wailing on the final solo as Lou continued to rip through on the bass and bleed. Not only one of the BEST Dino shows, but one of the most intense scenes. The bass was covered w/ blood by the end. (I have the audio from this one)
I saw them in ’88 at Maxwells as well and had a great video tape – sadly my VCR ended up eating the thing after so many viewings.
I have avoided the festival type shows for years so the last time I saw J was @ 89 – at the Ritz in NYC. Looking fwd to this string of shows and happy there is plenty of the old tunes being played.
Jeremiah – great site!

Although every time I have seen J it has been memorable, my all time fav has to be when he toured acoutically. It was in 95 or 96 at the Black Cat in D.C. I got to meet the man himself and he played a kick ass show.

Sadly I’ve only been to one show. Guess J’s favourite place isn’t Norway. So the thing to do was to get in the car and drive 600 kilometers to Vattenfestivalen in Sweden. But it was totally worth it! Probably the best concert I’ve ever been to.

I only saw Dino twice – once in ’94 and once in ’97.
They were fanatastic both times and although the first one was a real eye opener (and I was kind of dumbstruck) the second time kind of pips it cos the set included:
Can’t we move this
Never bought it
Feel the Pain
Puke and Cry
Just like Heaven

April 1995 at The Metro, Sydney, Australia. I was 13 at the time and it was my first gig. It’s still the best gig I’ve ever been too. [img]http://www.freakscene.net/ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I would have to say last year in Melbourne was the best gig ever(acoustic).
It was such a great gig that I sold my $3000 5 string bass and started playing acoustic guitar!(Only j could have that affect)

I would say 1995 (I can’t remember the exact date) but it was at the Trocadero in Philadelphia and they were touring for "Where you Been." It was so rockin’ because it was also the first time I ever saw them and I was blown away. I’ve seen J. a few times since then acoustically, but I’d always hoped for him to go electric again. When I saw him at the Troubadour in LA a few months ago, I was again blown away. I guess everytime is my favorite so just bear with me. I can’t wait to see him again in April in LA, now that I am know all the new stuff.

Toad’s Place – New Haven CT…April ’97, I think. My first show was acoustic at the Ironhorse in Northampton Mass. near J’s home. Anyway, at the Ironhorse, my buddy and I went downstairs to take a leak before the show and there’s J, talkin’ to two girls. We said ‘hey’, he said ‘hey’ and that was it. Flash forward to the Toad’s show in April ’97. My buddy and I are gettin’ some pizza next door. I say ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if we saw J again?’ Sure enough, we walk out and there’s J leanin’ against the tour van. As we walk out, he shoves off and walks in right in front of me. Once inside, like the rest of us, he shuffles to the bar to get a drink. No one bothers him, so I don’t either. To top things off, I turn to my buddy and say ‘I hope they play ‘The Lung’. Sure enough, first song of the night – a blistering ‘Lung’!April 5, 2001 at 12:15 am #53246
