J Mascis at the hi-dive video, 4/28/11
Dinosaur Jr songwriter J Mascis brought his solo acoustic tour to Denver last night at the hi-dive.
His set was made up of some Dinosaur Jr tunes and songs off this new acoustic LP Several Shades of Why. Below are the first two songs from the set -- "The Wagon," the first song off Dinosaur Jr's 1991 LP Green Mind and then "Listen to Me," the first song off Several Shades of Why.
Unfortunately, there's no video of him doing "Is it Done," which includes a classic Mascis guitar solo, and had at least a few fans in the crowded room raising their pints of beer in appreciation of the stoner guitar god.
