Dinosaur Jr played a surprise set at Amherst Common on September 10, 2017 consisting of their album You’re Living All Over Me.
September 9 – 33 years earlier in the same place Mogo (This lineup plus Nakajima) played their first gig at the same spot even though nobody seemed to realize it until someone brought up a flyer to show them.
“Oh, that was a practice gig for Riot Fest in Chicago. Our buddy, this guy that owns a local record store puts on a show every year and people were like, “oh if you’re gonna practice why don’t you do it here?” So we ran through it. It was cool. We hadn’t performed on the Amherst Commons in like 30 years. I was really nervous so I played the songs three times as fast. All these guys I knew from high school showed up. Six of my closest stoner buddies were there. It was totally surreal.” – via Murph
