Now that Dinosuar Jr. are back to their original trio they’ve certainly been rejuvenated, and even though their last album Farm was brilliant, the band are taking time out to please the old fans instead. Although You’re Living All Over Me is generally considered to be their best album there are those amongst us who prefer Bug, and even if you don’t, you more than likely still think it’s an amazing album. Bug even placed quite high up in our Top 100 Albums of the 1980s, so we’re certainly excited to see the band play the album in full on tour. Additionally Henry Rollins will be interviewing the band onstage at each of the shows.
For now only the West Coast gets this treat, but if all goes well perhaps they’ll take Bug across the country. Dates are below.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
