[gigs] Dinosaur Jr tour in March

There’s already gigs by Pavement and the Pixies in March, now it’s really seriously becoming indie nostalgia month with Dinosaur Jr coming to Adelaide as well.

Also recently announced is Neko Case at Fowlers in January.

When the WOMAD lineup was initially announced I failed to notice that the Dean in Dean & Britta is Dean Wareham, formerly of Galaxie 500 & Luna.

The Dirty Three are playing in Adelaide in January, but unfortunately they’re not bringing the Laughing Clowns with them.
