We recently shared a concert video from Sonic Youth's 1995 show at Philadelphia's Electric Factory in our daily listing of amazing live videos to watch while you're home and every show is cancelled. Perhaps with a similar idea in mind, Sonic Youth have now made eleven show recordings available on Bandcamp. They range from the late '80s (City Gardens 1987, CBGB's and Cabaret Metro 1988, Moscow 1989) to mid and late '90s (The Warfield 1993, Los Angeles 1998), to the 2000s (L'Olympia 2001, Cabaret Metro Chicago 2002, The Orange Peel 2004, Daydream Nation Live in Glasgow 2007, Berlin 2009), wrapping up with the band's final US show, in Brooklyn in 2011. We attended that one too, and about it, Lee Ranaldo writes:

Aside from 5 previously scheduled shows in South America in November of 2011, this was the last Sonic Youth show. The last one in the USA, anyway. We were joined by opening acts Wild Flag and Kurt Vile, both of whom played terrific sets on this day. The stage was facing the East River from the Williamsburg, Brooklyn waterfront, and I recall the sun going down in the west during our set. It was a pretty magical, if kinda weird day. Fitting, somehow, that our 'last show' should be in New York City, our home and where it all began…
