Sonic-Youth

So who wants to go see Sonic-Youth with me?

I just got an email from Mr. Small's saying that Sonic-Youth is playing there on August 29th (a Tuesday, which blows, though I so don't care), and that tickets go on sale this Friday at 10:00 am. I have no clue how much it will cost, but I seriously expect it to sell out in a heartbeat.

Anyone wanna go with me?

What? I must be so out of touch. Sonic Youth are still gigging. What aren't they like in their 40's or something now like me? Have FUN! Sounds like a great night out, despite it being a Tuesday.

The Confusion Is Sex album was released in 1983. If they were all 20 years old then, they'd all be 43 now.

And look at me -- I'm so old school, I still hyphenate "Sonic-Youth," even though they themselves haven't done that since Sister, which was released in 1987.

Yoof!
I would so go with you to that.

Haven't seen SY since 96 or so (Washing Machine tour, opened REM's Monster tour). I've a copy of Sonic Nurse around somewhere, haven't heard the new one. Daydream Nation is still the very it.

And what a bummer that the two people who have responded thus far are suewan (who lives in England) and you (from your computer in Prague). If either of you really want to go, you should book your flights now.

Last time I saw them was three or four summers ago, when they played a free show here at The Three Rivers Arts Festival. The Arts Fest gets some good shows; two or three summers ago it was Patti Smith (also a free show).

Incidentally, the first time I saw them was the Daydream Nation tour. Halloween 1988, in Columbus Ohio. Opening acts were The Hyenas (who sucked) and Die Kreuzen (who I missed because The Hyenas sucked so hard, I went outside to wander around and wait for Sonic Youth).
