how many times have you seen sy live?
 
just curious.

i think mccarren park will be my 7th time in 5 years? something like that


i'm sure most of you guys who have years on me have seen way more youth shows

nicfit 08.06.2008 01:40 AM

if the syr 3 tour counts, I think 6 times.

Everyneurotic 08.06.2008 01:40 AM

twice plus thurston with william winant and tom surgal once.

----

are you going to any of the king crimson shows in ny, cantanky?

Cantankerous 08.06.2008 01:41 AM

i didn't even know king crimson were playing here. probably not though.

Everyneurotic 08.06.2008 01:43 AM

in two weeks; i'm weighting the option because it's sixty-fucking-dollars and i can spend that money on something else.

Cantankerous 08.06.2008 01:44 AM

it's probably not the same seeing them now as it would have been 30 or 35 years ago. no way would i pay $60 either.

greenlight 08.06.2008 01:44 AM

tomorrow should be 6th. time i will see SY live.

they are still pretty righteous, i did like their recent-ish output.

but of course it's not the same as seeing them before, they are almost two complete different bands (and dozens others in between.)

but yeah, $60 dollars is pretty bogus, i might end up going to central park to fight all the hipsters grooving to battles.

atsonicpark 08.06.2008 01:53 AM

They've never came here and I don't think they've even come to this state in forever and I don't have a reliable car to go out of state and none of my friends like SY enough to ever go out of state to see them.

So.. NEVER.

Cantankerous 08.06.2008 01:54 AM

i'll watch out the window, i live across the street from central park.

that's surprising, i feel privleged now. i would have thought you of all people would have seen them.

Everyneurotic 08.06.2008 01:55 AM

ohh, ritzy.

and to address one concern of this thread, there's probably no way i will stay long enough to catch sy in mccarren park, so it's still twice without any change in sight.

Cantankerous 08.06.2008 01:56 AM

they better not play a bunch of shit from rather ripped or i will be marching up to thurston moore's doorstep and demanding a refund.

Death & the Maiden 08.06.2008 02:45 AM

Once. If I'd discovered them sooner it could've been twice.
