Sonic Youth fans in an Urban Outfitters - July 21, 2007 (CRED)
Sonic Youth in Urban Outfitters

Sonic Youth's final USA performance of the Daydream Nation album happens this Saturday July 28th at the historic McCarren Park Pool in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The Slits (still reunited) are opening, and the show is now sold out. Want to win tickets? E-mail BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Daydream), and let me know what the last show you saw was. Two winners will be picked at random, contact and awarded a pair of tickets (by 5pm today). Include your first and last name for list.

The Slits are also playing in Philly tonight (July 27), and then a few places in California.

The official McCarren Pool 'Smells Like Records' afterparty is not Saturday night. Instead it's happening on Sunday at The Living Room. The lineup: 7 Tall Firs, 8 John Wolfington, 9 Michelle Cassias w/ Tony Scherr, 10 Chris Lee, and @ 11 Tony Scherr. Sonic Youth's drummer Steve Shelley will be playing drums for John Wolfington and Chris Lee. Tall Firs are on Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label. It's sure to be a Sonic Youth-filled evening.

In other (depressing?) Sonic Youth news, the band will be releasing a compilation via Starbucks - the new home of Joni Mitchell (and of course Paul McCartney). Eddie Vedder, Jeff Tweedy, David Cross, Beck, and others are part of the Sonic Youth comp as well.

"does anyone know if fugazi show on sep 3rd is just a rumor or not?!?!"

anyone who thought it was true, or even considered it for a second, is a moron. It is a hoax.

I just heard that the Fort Reno show is on! The venue can only fit 200 people though so people are starting to line up right now! Hurry and get down here! I am writing this from the line on my my blackberry!

I work next door to Roseland. The first four people showed up in line for Silverchair before noon. There are currently still just four people in line. Better to be safe than... lame?

Is this show rain or shine. BV? Anyone?

Tickets state, "rain or shine."

I think it's gonna be a wet one.

"i dont have tickets but it's gonna be even better laying down on the grass listening to it."

Translation: all I did was bong hits in college and now I have a shit job that doesn't pay much and I can't afford tickets.

It's going to be better outside? So funny.

anyone have an extra?

Posted by brassbonanza | July 28, 2007 3:36 PM

I doubt it'll be better outside in the park but it does sound great. to be honest sonic youth don't even move around so it's not like you're missing anything outrageous.

Kim twirls! Is Mark Ibold playing with them today? If so, Kim will be on extra twirling duty.

'to be honest sonic youth don't even move around'
