Photos: Dinosaur Jr. Plays Bug at 9:30 Club

Dinosaur Jr. played the whole of their 1988 album Bug at the 9:30 Club Saturday night. They had one opening act—the Keith Morris-fronted OFF!—but they also opened for themselves, sitting on stools while fellow '80s hero Henry Rollins interviewed them about Bug and the events that surrounded it. It was a powerful evening, from the size of Rollins' arms to the scream-off between bassist Lou Barlow and a kid the band flew in from Arkansas during Bug's closing track, "Don't." In the hands of less-accomplished musicians, Dinosaur Jr.'s noise would be incoherent. On Saturday, it was a stadium sound brought to club scale.
