Pick: Dinosaur Jr.

October 17
Dinosaur Jr. w/ Shearwater
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $20, onepercentproductions.com

One of the last times Dinosaur Jr. came to town, I braced myself for a torrent of noise guaranteed to bring about quick and sudden deafness. When the band started playing, I quickly adjusted to the volume and wondered why my ears weren't being pierced by the din. They I realized the sheer volume was all organic -- J Mascis and Lou Barlow do not place microphones in front of their amplifier stacks to heighten their sweet walls of noise. The pioneering alternative band has been on a tear since their 2005 reformation, releasing three critically-acclaimed albums that have helped cement the band's loud legacy.
