Dinosaur Jr and Built To Spill double-bills in Galway and Dublin
As far as double-bills go, beat this. Alt-rock legends Dinosaur Jr and Built To Spill are teaming up for a joint tour, which will include dates in Galway's Black Box and Dublin's Vicar Street. It's quite the coup for Galway, as is the fact that Mark Lanegan will be returning to play Roisin Dubh in April after his well-received gig there last year with Greg Dulli.
Dinosaur Jr + Built to Spill, Black Box: May 10
Vicar Street: May 11
Mark Lanegan, Rosin Dubh, April 30
Here's a classic clip of Dinosaur in their prime, taken from the superb film The Year That Punk Broke:
