Hey guys, I'm super excited about seeing J Mascis live....but does anyone know what kind of set he's going to be doing? The reason why I ask is because people somehow knew that the Flaming Lips set would be mostly from The Soft Bulletin album, maybe theres some inside info floating around about J Mascis. I've been listening to a lot of his stuff and theres a lot of different styles of music, it could be Dinosaur Jr, J Mascis + the Fog, J Mascis from his current albums....or this:
Any other discussion about how awesome J Mascis is on this topic is welcome, anyone seen him live before?

The Flaming Lips will be playing Soft Bulletin in its entirety, which they've been doing for a while now, and it was advertised like that - no special insider info. So we really have no idea what J Mascis will play but listen to his most recent solo album for ideas.
on his recent tour he was playing the majority of the new album and a couple dino jr classics. I'd expect about the same. This was his setlist in Minneapolis:
J Mascis' Setlist: Thumb Listen To Me Several Shades Of Why Circle Of Friends (Edie Brickell) Ocean In The Way Get Me Not The Same Not Enough (w/Kurt Vile) Make It Right (w/Kurt Vile) Ammaring Flying Cloud Can I Not You Again Is It Done Quest (Encore) The Wagon (Encore) Little Furry Things (Encore)
i tried to find the article, but i have to go to work. Pitchfork talked about his performance at another large venue. In what I remember, the article said he initially seemed small and alone on the stage with such a mellow sound. Later, he started wailing out some solos and stuff and it seemed more natural. Maybe I'll find the article later.
I hope he's good. I've been a big fan for a long time.
