Watch Dinosaur Jr. + Kurt Vile Cover Neil Young, Perform With Kim Gordon at Anniversary Show
Dinosaur Jr. hang with a pretty cool crowd. That much was proven true during the first in a seven-night set of anniversary shows in New York City on Friday (Dec. 4).
The formative rockers are currently celebrating the 30th anniversary of their debut album Dinosaur with a seven-night stand at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. The very first show took place on Friday and included a host of guest appearances from Kim Gordon, Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, Henry Rollins and more.
During the shows, J Mascis and company are treating fans to Dinosaur in its entirety plus a second set of career-spanning material. Vile joined the band on 2007’s “Crumble” and a cover of Neil Young’s “Cortez the Killer.” You can watch the latter performance -- which also featured John Moloney on drums -- in the fan-shot video at the bottom of the page. Ex-Sonic Youth frontwoman Kim Gordon also made appearance to sing Bug’s “Don’t.” That can also be seen below (via Stereogum).
Rollins introduced the band, while Steve Gunn sang on “Yeah We Know” and Fiery Furnaces frontwoman Eleanor Friedberger accompanied on “Get Me.”
