Dinosaur Jr. In The Hands Of Fans

Dinosaur Jr. and MVD are giving fans the opportunity to film and interview their performance of Bug at the 9:30 Club in D.C., on June 25th. Six fans will be chosen by way of a video submission contest to join director Dave Markey (1991: The Year Punk Broke, Desperate Teenage Lovedolls) on location.

The contest is based on fans submitting short high definition video segments through www.InTheHandsOfTheFans.com asking Dinosaur Jr. interview questions, or demonstrating why they should win the contest. Winners of the contest will film and interview Dinosaur Jr. at the 9:30 Club. This fan shot footage, along with the contestant video submissions, will be crafted into a high definition longform program, which will be part concert film and part reality TV show about the journey of the fans.

“I hate bugs,” said J Mascis. “If you do too, come see us perform the whole album at the 9:30 Club, even if you LuvBugs. You can videotape our performance cause we’re putting it In the Hands of the Fans.”

The final program for Dinosaur Jr. IN THE HANDS OF THE FANS is expected to release on DVD, BluRay, digital download and broadcast late 2011. All contestants will receive a special offer to purchase the film early along with some exclusive value added content.
