From the very outset of Tuesday night’s Dinosaur Jr. show at Brooklyn Bowl — the second of a two night run — it was fairly obvious that the sonic onslaught was in full on mode. Monday’s show was an extraordinary show that we were happy to have attended and recorded, but Tuesday was fully in your face. Any decibel restrictions that the venue may have sought to impose were disregarded as J Mascis’ Marshall guitar stack was well utilized, and the thumping bass of Lou Barlow and Murph’s monster percussion rattled the rib cage. The band also switched up the setlist, so we got some oldies for Bug fans (rare “Budge” and ubiquitous “Freak Scene”), and You’re Living All Over Me diehards (“Little Fury Things”). J and Lou also brought out old friend and Deep Wound bassist Scott Helland to perform one of the first songs the guys ever recorded for that band. We also saw a handful of guests for the “Sub Pop version of The Wagon” including legendary guitarist Don Fleming. And if that wasn’t enough, the show ended with a mini Negative Approach set as singer John Brannon (also of openers Easy Action), drummer Opie Moore and guitarist Harold Richardson joined J and Lou to play two of the seminal Michigan hardcore band’s songs. If we learned anything from this outstanding two-fer of Dinosaur Jr. shows at Brooklyn Bowl, its that this band remains a powerful presence in today’s music. Our still-ringing ears agree.

We recorded this set with the mic stand about midway on the right side of the venue and nyctaper used Schoeps cards while acidjack employed Schoeps hypers. The full sonic blast of this show is faithfully captured in both recordings. Enjoy!
