Bug, released in 1988, was the last album released by all three original members before Lou Barlow’s departure from the band. It wasn’t until 2007 that the band recorded a new album together, but nothing speaks to their audience quite like Bug.

Henry Rollins, of Black Flag is going to interview Dinosaur Jr. live on stage. His ex-band mate will be sharing the stage with him that night as well in his punk supergroup, OFF! which is made up of four heavy hitting, punk legends, Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Steven McDonald (Redd Kross) and Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless/Hot Snakes/Rocket From the Crypt). They made their live debut at SXSW 2010 and have been rebelling and pushing the limits ever since.

Stone Sour, Skillet & Art of Dying

Electric Factory is proud to present Stone Sour with special guests Skillet & Art of Dying in concert on Wednesday, May 5th @ 8PM. The American rock band will perform at Electric Factory located at 421 N. 7th Street Philadelphia, PA. Tickets are $29.50 General Admission, $32 Day of Show and will be available this Saturday, April 9th @ 12PM at, Ticketmaster, charge by phone at 800-745-3000, and The Electric Factory Box Office located at 421 N. 7th Street, Mon – Sat 12PM – 6PM.

Stone Sour, the triple-Grammy nominated group has been playing sold-out shows around the planet in support of 2006’s critically acclaimed Come What(ever) May, a sonic blockbuster that entered Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart at No. 4 and went on to sell more than a half-million copies on the strength of three radio hits, including the No. 1 smash single, "Through Glass.” Billboard hailed the record as “an intense, taut piece of work,” Alternative Press called the group “masters of ass-kicking,” adding,” In a better America, Stone Sour would be the face of American rock,” and Revolver magazine gave the disc four stars and praised the quintet for “demonstrating a dynamic range equaled by few of their peers.” Four years later, the quintet have returned with a broadened range, a deepened perspective and the determination to make new album Audio Secrecy a multi-layered record free of stylistic limitations.

Alternative CCM rockers Skillet formed in Memphis, TN, around the nucleus of lead singer and bassist John Cooper, guitarist Ken Steorts, and drummer Trey McClurkin. Debuting in 1996 with a self-titled LP, the trio returned two years later with Hey You, I Love Your Soul. Invincible followed in early 2000, and the group contributed three tracks to the Ardent Worship: Skillet Live compilation that same year. With a new lineup of Cooper on bass and lead vocals, his wife Korey Cooper on guitar and keyboards, Ben Kasica on guitar, and Lori Peters on drums, Skillet released Alien Youth on Ardent Records in 2001, followed by Collide, also on Ardent, in 2003. Collide went on to be the band's best-selling album to date (even earning them a Grammy nomination), and the band supported the record on tours with bands like Saliva and Shinedown.
