Dinosaur Jr. supplied the latest installment of NPR Music‘s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series, performing from an empty Shea Theater in Turner Falls, MA. The five-song concert saw the band explore its latest record, Sweep It Into Space, as well as some classic tracks from the 80s and 90s.

Starting off with Sweep It Into Space‘s “I Ain’t”, Dinosaur Jr. adds some personal touches to the Shea Theater stage. Just like Bob Boilen‘s iconic NPR office—where Tiny Desk concerts occurred prior to the pandemic—the alt-rockers decorated the Shea with various knickknacks, curios, oddities, and more garbage. Of note, the stage is adorned with vinyl copies of Sweep It Into Space, Mott The Hooples‘ All The Young DudesBoston‘s self-titled 1976 debut, and more.

Beyond the band’s music, the Tiny Desk concert also features some prime banter led mostly by bassist Lou Barlow, who discusses Kurt Vile‘s contribution to the band’s new album as a co-producer as well as the story behind his song “Garden”, found on the record. Dinosaur Jr. takes viewers back to its heyday of 1990s alt-rock glory with the surprise hit “Feel the Pain” before one more Sweep song, “I Ran Away”. The concert then closes out with 1988’s “Freak Scene”.
