jmascis2-thumbRegular visitor, Dinosaur Jr frontman and guitar-guru J Mascis returns to Australia and New Zealand in February 2015 for a stack of solo shows.

The Mascis itinerary includes an appearance at the Adelaide's Garden Of Unearthly Delights Aurora Spiegeltent, two spots as special guest to premier ambient / noise outfit Mogwai at Perth's International Arts Festival, headline performances along the Australian east coast (including first time solo appearances in Hobart and Canberra) and three gigs on the north island of New Zealand.

The 2015 tour follows the release of "Tied To A Star", the second solo album from Mascis that picks up exactly where 2011's debut "Several Shades Of Why" left off.

As an added treat, former Magic Dirt front woman Adalita will join J for shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sydney.

The two indie-rock luminaries paired up in 2012 for an appearance on SBS TV showRockwiz performing the Tom Petty / Stevie Nicks classic "Stop Dragging My Heart Around", although the relationship goes back further with Magic Dirt supporting Dinosaur Jr on their 1995 Australian tour.
