Dinosaur Jr. played a sold out show in Charlotte last night with openers Easy Action.
This was actually the second time I’ve seen Easy Action open for Dinosaur Jr., the first being a couple of years ago in Nashville. They got a polite but not overly enthusiastic response from the crowd. I enjoyed their set but still prefer John Brannon’s other band, Negative Approach.
Dinosaur Jr. put on the typically great performance you’d expect of them. J Mascis calmly shredding through the band’s highlights while Lou Barlow bounces around while playing bass. They are a contrast to each other in stage demeanor for sure.
