UPDATE: Columnist Brad Pareso, explains himself and apologizes. “So to Geoff Schweigert, SkateDaily.net and anybody else who read this and though it was just another blatant stereotyping of skateboarding culture—it was, and that was the joke.

Dinosaur Jr. at House of Blues Sunset

“Grunge is Dead” read Murph’s shirt, the drummer of Dinosaur Jr. as we all sat upstairs at the House of Blues Sunset having a smoke. I remember Dinosaur Jr. as the coolest thing in the 90’s when grunge and alternative rock was in its prime. We’d blast their tapes in my parent’s garage along with […]
