Sonic Youth are in the process of celebrating Daydream Nation‘s 30th anniversary with film events that include screenings of Lance Bangs‘ new Daydream Nation film and a Q&A with Lance and other guests (SY drummer Steve Shelley is appearing at most). Since we last spoke, more screenings were announced (Minneapolis and Atlanta), and they’ve got TBA screenings for December 8 and 9 too. Updated dates are listed below.

As mentioned, there are two sold-out Brooklyn screenings (4:30 PM and 9:30 PM at Alamo Drafthouse), and SY guitarist Lee Ranaldo is scheduled to take part in the Q&A at the latter. Lee also just announced a NYC show with his Electric Trim Trio taking place at Union Pool on December 21. Tickets go on sale Friday (11/16) at 10 AM. That’s shortly after his new Electric Trim Live at Rough Trade East comes out (12/14).

UPDATE: Lee also plays a solo (electric and acoustic) set at Joseph Arthur‘s annual New Year’s Day show at City Winery (tickets), and he also plays the “Love Speech” benefit at Murmrr Theatre on December 1.
