After parting ways in 1989, the original members of the Amherst, Mass.-based alternative rock trio Dinosaur Jr. (from left: J. Mascis, Murph and Lou Barlow) got back together in 2005 and have since recorded three albums; the latest, I Bet On Sky (Jagjaguwar), was released last year to mass acclaim. They'll play at wall-shaking volumes this Thursday at Hartford's Arch Street Tavern, which is a big deal. Philly noise-rockers Purling Hiss open.
