    Hi everyone,
    I thought it might be a good idea to introduce myself. My name is Susan, I’m 24 and I’ve been listening to Dinosaur Jr since I was 15.
    I’ve never stopped loving their/J’s music but recently, after seeing J Mascis & the Fog play, I’ve been really into them again.
    I tried to see Dinosaur Jr when I was 18 with fake ID but was rejected.

So finally I saw J on May 3. My face hurt afterwards from smiling so much. I go to a lot of shows, but this was one of my favorites ever. I think because the music has been with me for so long… it’s like a part of my growing up. I didn’t know what to expect as far as Dinosaur Jr material, but when Little Fury Things was the 2nd song… [img]images/smiles/converted/jump.gif[/img]
    The Vancouver show was so good (although LAL couldn’t make it across our stupid border) I had to drive all the way to Seattle the next night to see him again! I forced my boyfriend to come with me (he’s not much of a fan but really enjoyed the show anyway). The setlist was completely different which was cool. Before the show I was sitting about 3 feet away from J for over 1/2 hour, but was too shy to say hi. He was talking with a bunch of guys (one guy from Mudhoney) and he just really doesn’t seem to be the talkative type. When I walked past him later I sort of smiled but he looked away quickly. Oh well… So I guess that’s my story.. that’s how I ended up at this board; since the shows I haven’t been able to get enough J.



    Hey Staingirl,
