Dinosaur Jr - A WARNING!!!

Recommended Posts

Guest Steven Dedalus

Hello!

Last night I saw Dinosaur Jr. I was right at the front, facing J Mascis' stack of NINE amplifiers.

I may never hear anything ever again....

If you're going to see them:

WEAR EARPLUGS!

Please.

Other than that, they were pretty good.

Like, seriuosly. I can't stress how loud they were.

During the first song, I felt physically sick!

The best place to hear the gig was outside the venue!

They were truly rocking and played a total wish list of songs.

I've never seen them, but I would like to, my ears can take it. The loudest gig I've ever been at was that shite indie band that supported The Whip at the Tunnels a couple of months ago. It's like they thought that by being really loud everyone would think they are really cool and not notice they are ding. Fucking ridiculous. I was right at the back of the venue and I couldn't hear a word my mates were saying, it was actually painful. The Whip played at a fine volume. I was down the front for them and I could hear my mates talking shite fine.

Worst thing is...I need my ears for work. I work in the radio. I had to go and interview Ballet dancers, and Craig from the Hold Steady, and I'm not sure what any of them were saying...

I went to see Dinosaur Jr two years ago in Edinburgh (been to see them about five times in total). The noise level was insane. I remember when the solo to the first song kicked in it felt as if my teeth and my spinal chord were rattling around and my ears were bleeding. I had to rush to the back of the room to escape, and remained there for the rest of the set.

I love Dinosaur jr, but I did feel that was slightly over the top.

I tend to wear earplugs to any gig that I know is going to be vaguely loud, and I usually take them with me anyway just in case.

It might well be seen as "wimpish", but I'd rather be able to hear the following day (and indeed in 30 years' time) than be perceived as "hard".

I always prided myself on my punkrock credentials, and never wore earplugs to anything, especially my own gigs.

I now can't hear in my right ear.

Who's laughing now?

I have no idea, as I can't hear.

Jesus wouldn't wear earplugs at gigs.
