DINOSAUR JR.
9 p.m., Revolution. $16-$22.

Dude. Rock shows like this don't come around often. Unquestionably one of the finest power trios ever and, typically, within music geekdom, acknowledged as the link between the Replacements and Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr. comes to town not as a nostalgia act — though there's bound to be a contingent, maybe of Guitar Hero players, waiting around for “Feel the Pain” — but as a band still putting out strong material nearly 25 years after debuting. Seriously. Dig around the web for “Been There All the Time” (or stream it below). First listen you'll think it's some lost '90s era track. It's got a strong hint of what J. Mascis called “ear bleeding country,” pummeling guitar runs, spastic drumming and Mascis plaintive wail. But it's actually from 2007's “Beyond,” the first album from the J/Lou/Murph line-up since all that awkwardness in the '90s. This tour serves as a “road-test” for new material the band plans to release, through Jagjaguwar, in June. In addition to getting to preview new songs, concertgoers will also score a tour-only 7” with admission. From Augusta, Ga., Dead Confederate works some guitar-laden psychedelics in its alt-rock. The show's open to all ages.
