Dinosaur Jr touring Europe with Built to Spill; Lou Barlow announces U.S. solo trek

Dinosaur Jr, circa 2006

The reactivated Dinosaur Jr will spend most of May touring Europe with fellow guitar rockers Built to Spill — a six-string lover’s dream, no doubt — before bassist Lou Barlow returns to the U.S. for a 14-date headlining solo trek in June in support of last year’s Goodnight Unknown.

The Dinosaur Jr tour finds the band still promoting last year’s Farm — the second post-reunion album from the band’s original ’80s lineup — with 21 shows, including festivals in Austria and Sweden and 17 shows in the U.K. and Europe with Built to Spill. The band will be on the road from May 6 to 30 (see dates below).

After that, Barlow returns home for a second round of dates in support of his latest solo album. Last year he opened for Dinosaur Jr’s U.S. tour, and now he’ll mount a headlining tour, beginning June 10 in San Diego and looping back to Los Angeles on June 26 (see dates below). Once again, Barlow will be backed by Mike Watt’s Missingmen: guitarist Tom Watson and drummer Raul Morales.
