Dinosaur Jr. In The Hands Of The Fans

06/08/2011
.
MVD have announced that Dinosaur Jr. are putting themselves In The Hands Of The Fans on June 25th.

Just like Iggy and the Stooges did with "Raw Power" last September, Dinosaur Jr. and MVD are offering fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to film and interview their performance of the classic album "Bug" at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. on June 25.

Six lucky fans will be chosen by way of a video submission contest to join director Dave Markey (1991: The Year Punk Broke, Desperate Teenage Lovedolls) on location.

The contest is based on fans submitting short high definition video segments through www.InTheHandsOfTheFans.com asking Dinosaur Jr. interview questions, or demonstrating why they should win the contest. Winners of the contest will film and interview Dinosaur Jr. at the 9:30 Club. This fan shot footage, along with the contestant video submissions, will be crafted into a high definition longform program, which will be part concert film and part reality TV show about the journey of the fans.

"MVD is honored to work with an act of such high integrity and esteem, " says Ed Seaman, C.O.O. of MVD Entertainment Group. "We made dreams come true for six fans when we did RAW POWER, and are thrilled to do this with Dinosaur Jr. doing BUG."

Following the announcement that Dinosaur Jr. was to perform the classic album BUG in its entirety in London in July, the band announced a short tour in the US in June. The US dates kick off in Northampton, MA with a concert benefiting Whole Children, including Henry Rollins, Thurston Moore, and The Warblers and continues throughout the East Coast featuring Dinosaur Jr. performing Bug in its entirety, Henry Rollins interviewing Dinosaur Jr. live and special guests OFF!, with F**ked Up also performing in New York City.

"I hate bugs," said J Mascis. "If you do too, come see us perform the whole album at the 9:30 Club, even if you LuvBugs. You can videotape our performance cause we're putting it In the Hands of the Fans."
