The three guys in the massively influential band Dinosaur Jr.—singer-guitarist J. Mascis, bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph—have played together since the early ’80s. Well, that’s not exactly true. That’s when they began making music together. Barlow actually left the band following the release of Bug in 1988. Fortunately, he returned to the fold in 2005. The trio has since released three more albums, including this year’s well-received I Bet on Sky. But back in 1987, they put out their seminal album, the grunge masterpiece You’re Living All Over Me, filled with stellar songwriting, loud guitars and a healthy dose of feedback. And to celebrate the album’s 25th anniversary, Dinosaur Jr. (above, doing “Little Fury Things,” for KEXP FM) will play two sets tomorrow night at Terminal 5: one with the LP done in its entirety and a second with a group of special guests—including Kim Gordon, Johnny Marr, Al Cisneros and Kurt Vile. This is one you won’t want to miss.
It’s a family affair with the Cribs. The English three-piece is made up of twins Gary (bass and vocals) and Ryan (guitar and vocals) Jarman and younger brother Ross (drums). Additional guitarist Johnny Marr left the band last year, but David Jones has taken on those duties when the band is on the road, which, with a new album, In the Belly of the Brazen Bull, out in May, is exactly where the Cribs are. Watch them, above, playing “Men’s Needs” at last year’s Kendal Calling festival and then come see them put on a lively show on Friday at Music Hall of Williamsburg before the band heads back to Europe.
