Indie guitar legend J Mascis will be performing live and signing autographs at the Newbury Street location of Newbury Comics Tuesday at 6:00 PM.
Mascis's new album, Several Shades of Why, comes out tomorrow, so it's a great chance to pick up the album, get it signed, and see Mascis live for free. Several Shades of Why (currently streaming on Spin) reveals a folkier, acoustic side of the former Dinosaur Jr. frontman, rather than his traditional roaring guitar freakout.
Mascis will be back for a full-length show at Brighton Music Hall on March 26th.
