    On an evening just two weeks before the release of their ninth studio album, Farm, Dinosaur Jr played a set which hacks and burns its way through any number of competitors on a night when both Mastodon and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are luring people away. That anyone should consider anyone else worth seeing over these three Masachusetts slacker-types is a little bewildering, though I’m sure they have their reasons.

    Agreed. There are a lot of holes to be picked in that articlej innacuracies which could have been corrected had the smallest amount of research been done, bogus comparisons, just plain bad writing…

Still at least they’re banging on about a great band for once :)

    Hope I don’t sound bitter
