Dinosaur Jr played the Taste of Randolph in Chicago this weekend and Otis Bperiod was kind enough to give us more behind the scenes shots along the way. Among those shots was a mention of J playing a NEW Dino tune! This is very promising 🙂

J’s No.1 1963 Fender Jazzmaster his go to live rocker. The black pickup covers J put on, the knobs with purple jewels also a Mascis little Twist. The action is set high as he prefers it. This has been his main Jazzmaster for a while now. @dinosaurjr @jmascis #jmascis #fenderjazzmaster A photo posted by —( ????™)— (@otisserie) on
Here's where the baking begins J's mothership control center. The shralp, the blend, the swirl and the Gnar all at the feets from finger to flanger. The only thing I see that's new on his board is a little red Mooer Ana Pedal. The rest is all tried and true faves. Photo By O. Dinosaur Jr, Chicago, IL. @dinosaurjr @jmascis #dinosaurjr

I was there, fist time I’ve seen them outdoors! It was amazing, they killed it! From start to finish a badass show as ususal.
I was there it was a great show but they only played an hour. Another 30 minutes of that would have been awesome.
