We have a particular affinity for Dinosaur Jr. here at nyctaper. It was our recording of them in the first few weeks of this site that put us “on the map” as it were. A year and a half ago, that concert exceeded all of our expectations. Last night at Terminal 5, Dinosaur Jr. exhibited an energy and level of proficiency that completely floored us — the band was even better than last time. Lou Barlow was energetic, animated and played frenetic bass guitar, and Murph was pounding furiously and filling up the huge room with his pinpoint beat. But it was the guitar work of J Mascis which most impressed us. As he stood played in front of his huge stacks of Marshall amps, J absolutely shredded every solo — and in particular his extended work in “Pick Me Up” and “Gargoyle” was simply outstanding.

We recorded this set from the identical location as the Built to Spill recording. However, the massive volume of this set virtually eliminated all crowd noise so that this is a cleaner recording. Enjoy!

This recording is now available in FLAC and MP3 at the Dinosaur Jr. Archives at Free So Free [HERE].

    Amazing show with terrific sound. I actually enjoyed the Meat Puppets contrary to others’ opinions and thought Dinosaur Jr was incredible. Absolutely at their peak and this recording is superb. Many thanks for being able to relive this.

    The mp3 file link is broken.

    Its not “broken”. The mp3 link is “link protected” from people who keep hijacking the direct links.

    If you are accessing through a college system, your university’s server doesn’t allow you to draw directly through the website since like any college server they have software filters.

    If you are at a university, that’s why you can’t access it, because you are behind a college “firewall:.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    I was at both shows and truly Dinosaur Jr kicked major ass! So much better than the last time I saw them (about 16 years ago I think).

    I went on Thursday and was so blown away by Dinosaur Jr that I got another ticket for Friday’s show.

    All three members were ridiculous. Barlow was a ball of energy, Murph was a beast, and what can you say about Mascis other than that he is a true poet of the 6-string?
