    Hopefully more will start showing up but someone did post some footage of the encore of “Hey, Hey, My, My”

    J played “Cortez the Killer”. I hope that one gets uploaded!

    “Performers include: Joe Purdy, Joan Osborne, Bettye LaVette, J Mascis, Ben Ottewell, The Wood Brothers, Shawn Colvin, DeVotchKa, Mason Jennings, Nada Surf, Bebel Gilberto, Cowboy Junkies, Keller Williams, Glen Hansard, Juliana Hatfield & Evan Dando, Aaron Neville, Jakob Dylan, Pete Yorn, The Roots and Patti Smith with Jesse Smith. “



    “Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis was the only artist of the night to truly channel the spirit of Crazy Horse. Backed by a tight three-piece band, he played a fuzzed-out “Cortez The Killer” that was absolutely smoking.”




    I couldn’t remember my old password so I am back with a new name. It sucks I work across the street from Carnagie Hall and I was planning on going but had to do a showcase that I got paid over $500 bucks for so I couldn’t turn it down but I could have scheduled it for next week, anyway, I love cortez the killer and whenever I heard Built to spill do it I always thought J could kill it and a couple of the songs on farm sound similar. Anyway it also sucks because I would have loved to catch up with Evan and Juliana and it looks from the video the George was there.



    Was debating going to see J sing the Amma songs tonight but think I will wait to see him next month do his new songs.

    I don’t think I could turn it down either. Evan & Juliana doing “Cinnamon Girl” would have been nice too. I hope some more footage or audio shows up from that show & from the Amma set. I am amazed that there was some up from the last show was posted since they are so small. – http://freakscene.net/forums/discussion/comment/130061

    Check out this site for some short Cortez footage.



    Amazing find @nickyjgarcia ! Thank you 🙂



    six months later still no video for this J-miracle?

    “Two minutes later, J Mascis, the bespectacled, long-gray-haired oddball of a frontman for alt-rock amp-busters Dinosaur Jr., plugged in and wailed “Cortez the Killer” so loud it could peel the gold paint from the buttresses, the crushed red velvet from the balcony seats.”




    I missed this. Thanks for bringing it up. I’ve been looking for footage of J playing with Tony Bennett from the Unplugged show in 1994…and nuthin’. The archives aren’t complete without these!



    The only person I know that has a copy of that Tony Bennett footage is J outside of the people at MTV that filmed it. Would love to see that too



    There is a clip of J playing “Cortez the Killer” up on tumblr – http://tumblrweeds.com/post/3372330941/j-mascis-doing-cortez-the-killer-at-the-neil



    Thanks a lot!
