Music for Sunday - Dinosaur Jr.

I've sneaked this in for you but please find the two photo posts of my visits to Amherst and Mount Holyoke College, below this!

I've been posting a lot about Amherst and surrounding towns of South Hadley (home of my daughter's school Mount Holyoke College) and I wanted to tie a local band to the whole thing. I thought about The Neilds who are local folk due. They're excellent. But my favorite Five College Band is Dinosaur Jr. which hatched at my alma-mater UMASS.

This is actually a prett laid back performance from frontman J Mascis and his band. You're lucky I didn't try to make you listen to one of many earspliting clips from their performances at clubs in the area.

This clip shows the campus pond and the area around it where concerts are held. This is an old one; before J Masic and I went totally grey. Dinosaur Jr. is UMASS all-over. Though the kids over there have gotten either all tatted up or very preppy clean-cut. Where's the revolutionary spirit? ;-) It's all a grand conspiracy, I tell ya!


Looks like I'm a Valley Girl for the long-haul. I can imagine all sorts of places I want to travel to. But I can't imagine not coming home to The Pioneer Valley.

  4. Wow, Jay looks like a kid! (guess 'cause he was! )

    Man sure can "trow a beatin'" on a guit-box, though.

    Brings back great memories (which you helped make, M'Dear!)
