From the Bowl to the Pier
Sonic Youth. It took some days to digest this show. Amazing. Imagine, this band is an early 80s band. I was turned onto them somewhere in the later later 80s, but here it is 2010, 30 years later and they can still make great music, and they can play live like none other. From the many meters we sat from the stage, Kim Gordon looked great. Thurston sounded awesome, Lee and Steve Shelley rocked it. They played like a great unit and didn’t mess with their hits. The coolest thing about the show was it was 9 songs, and yeah… no, “Teenage Riot”, “Kool Thing”, etc. What nerve they have! If I were in a band like that playing the Bowl, I’d almost think you’d have to play those songs. But that’s what makes SY, SY. Until it gets taken down… here’s a link to the show!
