Sonic Youth played 2 night in Brooklyn @ MHOW – pics, setlist

Sonic Youth

There’s not much to say aside from how excellent Tuesday night’s performance was, Sonic Youth‘s first of two nights in a row at Music Hall of Williamsburg (11/24). You can read the review Andrew wrote about their Terminal 5 gig Saturday night. The song selection was similar. The venue was smaller.

“Sonic Youth was AWESOME. That they can still be THIS good this late in their career is amazing, and very unique. I really enjoyed the new stuff and thought it jelled well with the old stuff they did play. I can see why they’re doing so much new stuff, to keep things interesting (for us and them). A bunch of songs from all over their career would have been interesting as long as they didn’t stick to the same “greatest hits” every night. Still hoping like crazy for Death Valley [Wednesday]!” [Joe]

It was the third time I’ve seen them this year, and by far the best: the energy and execution was just on point. Looking at the photos of them at the end, you can tell they enjoyed it, too: check out Thurston’s satisfied, boyish grin, right after capping encore two with “Silver Rocket”.

“No more songs,” a wave goodbye, and that grin.

Talk Normal opened the show Tuesday. Jemina Pearl opened Wednesday. More headliner pictures and the setlist from the first night, below…
