J Mascis continues his long and diverse music career. While best known as the singer, guitarist, and songwriter for Dinosaur Jr., Mascis also has 8 music projects and countless guest appearances under his belt. His loud, aggressive, and technical style earned him the 86th spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” list and as the 5th “Greatest Guitarist of All Time” in 2012 by Spin Magazine. While critically acclaimed collaborations show that the guitarist definitely plays well with others, his solo work offers a uniquely Mascis experience. Coinciding with his new acoustic album Tied to a Star, WCBN presents Mascis solo with opening act LULUC.
