Nineties college-rock demigods Dinosaur Jr. celebrated the 25th anniversary of their seminal LP "You're Living All Over Me" in New York City on Saturday. But with a musical guest list that read like a who's-who of indie-rock royalty, the show delivered more than navel-gazing anniversary fluff, Slicing Up Eyeballs reported.

Everyone from Pixies frontman Frank Black to Sonic Youth darlings Kim Gordon and Lee Ranaldo  made appearances in the second half of the show, which included covers of the Pixies' "Tame" and "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" by the Smiths, featuring Johnny Marr. One of the more memorable highlights was a particularly heated cover of the Stooges' "TV Eye," brought to you by the Replacements' Tommy Stinson, John Petkovic of Cobra Verde and showbiz's honorary hipster Fred Armisen on drums (because why the hell not?).
