Ranaldo

Lee Ranaldo is pretty good at guitar. The 30-year vet of Sonic Youth (and other projects) is now finally going to put those skills to real work, teaching YOU how to play. On October 28, Ranaldo will host a Guitar Clinic at Other Music with a discussion and demonstration of his weapon of choice. Everyone who attends will also get a signed poster. Hopefully it's like the one above, which more than winks in Dan Smith's direction. The learning commences at 8 PM that evening and is free.

Lee Ranaldo & The Dust's new album, Last Night on Earth, was released this week via Matador and you can stream the whole thing below. A few days before the guitar clinic, you can catch him and the band opening for Kurt Vile at Terminal 5 on October 25 (tickets). They'll also headline The Bell House on January 11 (tickets).

There have been some other additions to Lee Ranaldo & The Dust's tour and all dates are listed with the album stream, below...

That poster wins the internets for the day.

Lee apparently hasn't been making his required payments to Pitchfork lately.

If I really wanted to know how to suck at guitar I would have spent more time coming up with a wittier comment here.

^ You might have also spent more time on using more creative string of words. Oh, and by the way, you need to place a comma after "guitar" in that sentence. Read up on your grammar too.

^You forgot to put an A between "using" and "more".

^ should the period before after "more" go before the quotes? - 2:34PM

^ You should all completely fuck off and go do something creative with your, as of now, pathetic lives.

get lost john mayer

I can't stand John Mayer. He's a technically fantastic guitar playing, but he bores me to tears. So so excited to hear Lee's new work. I recall seeing SY when they opened for Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and it's been one wonderful ride since then. He's always been the "Experimental" in 'Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star'.

Ps. When you make this comment, "get lost john mayer" you really need to punctuate properly. Presumably, you are telling the reader, whom you are under the impression is Mr. Katy Perry, to get lost. Should that be the case, you should do so as follows:

Get lost, John Mayer.

There. We good now.
