Live Review: J Mascis 10/17/14 Bowery Ballroom, NY, NY

Hey all got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!!!

It was a fun time last Friday night as J went through his catalog....I emailed this to my editor Shane over at Glide:
I resigned myself mid show to be "the only one" who liked his actual song writing. Then I opened my eyes, bought a beer and realized, fuck j is amazing and all these people dig on him too. It was cathartic.
I thoroughly enjoy J's song writing but I do feel it is an acquired taste, he isn't for everybody and he has (basically) one style of writing. That said, I fucking love that style.

There is no one else on the planet can play/write/sing like him and that makes catching a solo show a can't miss in my book.  At the end of the night though, it was Friday and I reeeeeeeeallly wanted Dinosaur Jr. to be full throttle and rocking...oh well we have seen them a bunch and can view them now:
