Sonic Youth concerts are a wall of noise. I was lucky enough to catch them earlier this year at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. A few songs into the set, I had made my way all the way to the front of the tiny club; standing right up against the stage, reveling in the beautiful cacophony of noise that Kim, Thurston, Lee, Steve, and Mark were making.
The band surprised fans at ATP 2010 by playing a setlist of exclusively early material – something they rarely do. Stare at your shoes, crank up your speakers, and enjoy this gem of a bootleg.
