Dinosaur Jr are actually doing 3 nights @ Lee's Palace (24th/25th/26th) as part of Lee's Palace's 27th anniversary.

And on a side note, how have you not posted about the new Corin Tucker album that was announced? 'Kill My Blues' will be out later this year, and new song 'Groundhog Day' is out now. Aren't you like a massive Sleater-Kinney fan?

Thanks for the Corin Tucker news. I've been on vacation and some things have obviously slipped passed me!
