J. Mascis, Lou Barlow and Emmett Jefferson Murphy III (“Murph”) recorded the first Dinosaur album (the “Jr.” was added later because of a name dispute) at a home studio near Northampton in 1985. Three years later, Bug, their third and last album before Barlow's departure (he's back now), landed the trio a #1 spot on the U.K. independent chart. They'll perform the whole Bug album on Tuesday, with Henry Rollins conducting a live band interview and Thurston Moore (!) on the bill for support.
Dinosaur Jr. performs Bug in its entirety at Iron Horse Music Hall
