PICK OF THE WEEK: Dinosaur Jr. – Friday December, 14th – The Ogden Theater, Denver, CO

Why You Should go: Because there is only one Dinosaur Jr. The psuedo line-up from the 90’s just didn’t compete with the sheer sonic assault of the original line-up of J. Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph. They’ve been back together for a couple of years now and with a new album under their belt they are firing on all cylinders and raging through songs new and old with the same late 80’s fervor that caused them to rise to the top of the college rock / burgeoning grunge scene.

This is not a show for the light hearted, with his massive Marshall stacks, Mascis always seems to be bent on deafening his audience. If you go prepared with fresh set of earplugs you should be well prepared for a concert of epic proportions. Don’t expect too much of the radio friendly 90’s Dinosaur Jr. output, these guys are focusing on what they did so well 20 years ago and it’s like they never left.

The clip is their take on the Cure from their DVD, Live At The Middle East.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
