NEIL! Sounded pretty damn good. I've never seen the Youth live but it seemed good to me.

Just got back from the show. I see the board has been following along. Sorry you all coudn't be there. It was really hot. I mean temperature wise. Neat place for a show. Very scary neighborhood downtown. The new songs are good, but too short. SY never have any time to stretch out, and they seem unwilling to improvise very much.

I was at the Troubadour show as well, and that was better, I thought. This was by no means a bad show though. Far better than Arthurfest last year.

Please tell me someone recorded the stream and will post it up for all the people that went to the show and would like a copy? I got there super early and got to see Mark, Lee, and Steve play a ball game. While Kim and Thurston got taco's. Good times.

fuck yeah it was good! the venue was fantasic, brick warehouse, solid sound. good crowd, good vibe, crazy neighborhood for a rocknroll show (the la city hall was the only building you could see, it was like the 1950s before the skyline was built up). sonic clearly had a good time, and so did we. I smoked a fat spliff, chilled with steve and lee, well worth camping out in front of aomeba. god bless sonic youth for giving LA such a fantasic show!

The show was fucking amazing. I was right in front of Lee the entire time. Kim's dance moves were fucking awesome too.

Man what an awesome show! It was really great. Better than the time I saw them in San Diego HoB. SY were clearly having fun, and so were we. I was up in the front a little to the right of Lee (my right). I got lots of pictures, and video. I'm not sure how the audio on those vids sound though. I got a shirt and grabbed the setlist, I took a picture with Steve, and got him and Lee to sign my magazine. I feel like such an idiot though, because I forgot my sharpie and had to bring in this shitty pen that I found in the car. I bought an Awsome Color CD and got them all to sign the insert. Allison, the drummer, was really nice. Pictures will be up soon.

Nice pics! Yea, that neighborhood looks sketchy. Probably a stones throw away from Skid Row if that's in the downtown area. How many people did that place hold? Looks like an awesome time.

Well other than being hot as hell inside, the show was great. Wish they played more non-RR songs, though. Awesome Color was quite entertaining, too. I was the guy who passed out in line, heh.

I really liked the venue, though. It wasn't nearly as sketchy as it looked. Especially at night, it was pretty safe.

Didn't get too many good pictures cause I wasn't as close as I wanted. I was right in front of Thurston with maybe 3-4 people in front of me. But I'll post a few of the better ones.

Ya, I tried to record it before I left for the show, but the stream kept crapping out on me as well.
Others have said they got it; it should appear soon.

It was really a great show; the whole atmosphere was really friendly.
The city of LA needs to powerwash that sidewalk where everyone was lined up, though..the smell was wretched.

I was in front of lee the best day of my life. They played my favorites from RR so it was a fucking great time for me.

I was right in front with one person in front of me. I was between Kim and Lee and right in front of Thurston when he played bass. Lee shook my hand when he left after the main setlist and Thurston shook my hand sometime after that when they were coming back for the encore or when they were leaving; I can't remember. When they left for the last time Thurston grabbed 2 water bottles and threw them. They both passed right by me. I didn't catch any of them but my friend got the second one. I bought him a shirt and some buttons. I told him if he gave me the bottle, he wouldn't have to pay me back for the stuff, so he gave me the water bottle. What should I do with it? I think it was Kim's. She drank a little bit out of it.

After the show, we bought some stuff and went outside. We came back in and Thurston was standing near the SY table that sells stuff. I took a picture for some guys and then I walked up to him and didn't know what to say. I just said "Hi" and he smiled and shook my hand firmly.

We went back outside and Mark was there. I called out his name and I shook his hand too. I asked him if Pavement was getting back together and he said they had no plans. He said those internet rumors weren't true. Steve was then right next to me but I didn't want to interrupt his conversation. He left. Lee and Kim were standing about 10 feet away from me but were talking to some people. I didn't want to bother them either. Kim had a little black dog and said its name but I have since forgotten. My ride arrived so I left. I really wanted to talk to Steve but when he was done talking he just left and I didn't want to bother him.

Oh, I forgot some stuff. Awesome color's bassist was really kick-ass. Other than that they didn't sound too good. All I could hear was bass and drums. When their singer came on I thought it was someone from the audience. He totally ruined the band for me.

Now some SY stuff. Kim is so much hotter live and her dance moves rocked. I didn't even try talking to her because she just seems intimidating for some reason. Here are some quotations that I remember.

T: The last timre we played in downtown LA was in 1982 when I was born.

T: How is it over there on your side of the stage?
L: It's good. (or something like that) How is it over there?
T:Total destruction. (Starts playing)

Thurston said Lee was going to release a solo album next year. He said if it wasn't out by next spring to email him at Lee@sonicyouth.com. Lee then playfully said that that wasn't his e-mail address.
