Dinosaur Jr tour!

As previously reported on this blog, Dinosaur Jr. have a new album out as of this week, entitled Farm (or at least I think I posted something close to that piece of news--I have been working 11 hours or so a day for the past couple of days and really I just wanna do my blog writing for the week before taking a lengthy, sweet NAP.) Recently Pitchfork declared the album to have like "Best New Artwork" or something, which is total shit, unless you're like, a first year of college hippie who thinks a drawing of giant green creatures stalking through what looks like a more bustling version of Gary, Indiana is totally groundbreaking and really has a unique message, maaaaaan. Or if you're the little girl from the Scorpions' Virgin Killer album, because that is what it looks like the giant green message-bearing creatures are transporting. (I don't know--it's not horrible. It's not on the level of hatred I reserve for Little Feat covers--anthropomorphic tomato women are NEVER sexy, NEVER--or say, the Rippingtons, who have this freaky lookin' late 90s cat mascot who does Jazz Dad stuff, like playing golf, or lounging on the deck after mowing the lawn. Trust me: this cat is so heinous I won't even post a link to him. And ordinarily I love all cats.

Anyways, Dinosaur Jr. have this new album. And so they have an upcoming tour this fall, which stops in my fair city. So exciting!
