Dinosaur Jr. to film shows in Chicago, New York
Veteran alt-rock trio Dinosaur Jr., which mounted a reunion tour earlier this year, has lined up four November concerts, including a two-night stand in New York City that will be filmed for a live DVD.
The group will warm up for the film shoot with a pair of shows at Chicago's Metro on Nov. 29-30, and will roll cameras at New York City's Irving Plaza on Dec. 2-3. Tickets for all four shows are on sale now.
In addition to concert footage, the DVD will feature backstage and behind-the-scenes clips, as well as one-on-one interviews with frontman J. Mascis, bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph, according to a press release.
Dinosaur Jr. announced in February that it was reuniting for a television performance and appearances at festivals in the U.K. and Japan. A North American tour followed. The group's original lineup of Mascis, Barlow and Murph split in 1989, though Mascis continued to record under the Dinosaur Jr. name for several more years.
Merge Records reissued the first three Dinosaur Jr. albums--"Dinosaur," "You're Living All Over Me" and "Bug"--in March.
