Yes! J Mascis is coming back to Australia

J Mascis is touring!

This is really good news for us all.

I saw J Mascis, solo, opening for Sonic Youth years ago and it was amazing. I remember being astounded by the sheer lack of floor left below, covered entirely by pedals, cords and instruments.

Mascis last visited Aus for the 2011/2012 Falls Festival and a run at Sydney Festival. Now, the Dinosaur Jr frontman and all ‘round legend (and weirdo) is heading back in February him again, in support of his latest album Tied to a Star. He’ll be playing at Adelaide’s Garden of Unearthly Delights, as well as playing alongside Mogwai at the Perth International Arts Festival.

I highly, highly recommend attending one of these shows!
