Please Watch J Mascis Singing Tom Petty Karaoke To A Half-Empty Bar In Massachusetts
There are still some good things in the world, like this Facebook video captured by an unsuspecting patron of an empty-looking bar in Provincetown, Mass., when J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. stepped onstage to rip through a karaoke version of Tom Petty’s “Don’t Do Me Like That.” J rocks back and forth with the awkwardness of a first-time performer, but he sounds great, his gritty nasal delivery a fine match for the late legend’s own. “Life is rad,” wrote videographer Ryan Bakerink on Facebook. For the moment, we agree. Watch it below.
UPDATE 4/9/2019: Mascis has released a cover of “Don’t Do Me Like That.”
