J. Mascis Has A Bobblehead Doll, Is Releasing A Dinosaur Jr. Live DVD, & Is On The Weezer Cruise
There are a ton of honors that can be bestowed on a heralded member of the rock community - induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, top rankings on Best Of lists, yadda yadda. But you know you've REALLY made your mark when someone makes a bobblehead doll version of you, which is exactly what happened to the White Wizard of Indie Rock, J. Mascis.
Aggronautix, the "Proprietors of Fine Throbbleheads" (whoa gross), have created a limited-edition bobblehead of the Dinosaur Jr. cofounder that will ship in April and is available for pre-order now, REAL DOLL HAIR and all. There will only be 1000 of these made, so show your love of all things Dino and pre-order one today.
While you've got your credit card out, head over to Amazon where according to Exclaim you can pre-order the new Dinosaur Jr. live DVD, Bug Live At 9:30 Club: In The Hands Of The Fans. The concert film captures Dinosaur Jr.'s full live performance of their classic album Bug at Washington D.C.'s famed music club this past June, and will be available on February 21.
Finally, as we mentioned earlier, Mascis is spending the weekend rocking out on The Weezer Cruise and possibly road-testing some of that new Dino Jr. material off of the album that Lou Barlow said is on the way. We're in NYC stocking up on baked beans and shotgun shells due to this two-inch "snowstorm" we're having, but our awesome and hilarious friend The Backstage Rider is on board the Cruise and sharing some pretty classic behind-the-scenes news and photos - follow her on Twitter over here
