Soundgarden @ Webster Hall 6/2/2014
Soundgarden

“We’re from Seattle,” Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell said as he led the band through its classic 1994 album “Superunknown” at New York’s Webster Hall on Monday (June 2), “It’s black even in f**king July.” The sold-out crowd erupted into the third of countless cheers as the quartet slid into “Fell On Black Days,” the first of the album’s two famous ‘black’ songs.

Just a day ahead of the deluxe re-release of “Superunknown,” the Seattle group had convened in downtown Manhattan for this Citi-sponsored club show — with the astonishing ticket price of $19.94 — to celebrate the richly-veined, muscular 70 minute epic by playing it in its entirety for the only second time, following a special gig at SXSW in March. And against a backdrop of the album’s black-and-mars-red abstract cover image of Cornell in mid yell, Soundgarden brought all of that rock (and more) to bear in a tight, thunderous tumult that alternately made it hard to believe 20 years had passed and made it clear that the two decades had honed both the band (which reformed in 2010 after breaking up in 1997) and the familiar music — they were playing those great old songs even better than ever. – [Billboard]

Soundgarden celebrated the 20th anniversary of Superunknown (and it’s superdeluxe reissue) last night (6/2) in NYC at the relatively small Webster Hall. (Tickets, only available to Citi cardmembers, were cleverly priced at $19.94.) The grunge gods played Superunknown front-to-back — only the second time they’ve ever done it — with an encore of “Outshined” and “Rusty Cage.” Pics and setlist from the show are in this post.

If you missed it, Sirius radio listeners can hear the whole concert on Howard Stern’s Howard101 channel on on June 13 at 10 PM EDT. The band also play The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight (June 3rd). And you can catch Soundgarden on tour with Nine Inch Nails all summer long, including a few shows in the NYC area.
