Dinosaur Jr. is back from extinction and roaring louder than ever. The original lineup (J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph) has delivered three solid albums since reuniting seven years ago – two decades after they left off. Nobody on the globe plays guitar with the ragged grandeur that Mascis has made his signature style. Bring the kids to Asylum (121 Center St., Portland) for this 8 p.m. show. Tix: $20 (18+). 772-8274. portlandasylum.com.
