In July, Dinosaur Jr is putting on Camp Fuzz. It’s a full blown rock and roll camp that will feature interviews, clinics, live performances and more. Surely one of the drawcards for the event will be a Q&A featuring My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields and Dinosaur Jr’s J Mascis.
Gear clinics, live performances and… financial planning? Camp Fuzz promises to be a hell of a weekend, with Kevin Shields and J Mascis chatting guitars.
Located at the Full Moon Resort, in upstate New York, Camp Fuzz treat guests to in depth clinics from on drums and guitar, with one surprise seminar being a financial planning session with comedian Fred Armisen.
Some of the other highlights include live performances from J Mascis solo and Dinosaur Jr., late night open jams and karaoke sessions.
Perhaps most interesting for folks that are in the pursuit of tone, will be the chat between the Dinosaur Jr. frontman and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine fame. It’s not the first time they’ve collaborated either.
Both bands are of course known for the mesmeric might of their guitar tones – both famously purveyors of the Fender Jazzmaster – so any light that can be shed on their secrets is welcome news.
