Hey,

I want to find a bunch of cool Sonic Youth live shows to listen to, but I don't know where to start. Anyone have good suggestions?

youtube links posted for ease of access, most of those are quite easily available as lossless versions...I don't encourage ripping the audio directly from the youtube links..

start with the album(s) (or even individual songs) you like the most and search for concerts from that era, e.g. on Youtube. Make sure it's not super low quality, e.g. there are videos in only 240p, simply skip them. It will only hurt your ears.

For instance I could suggest anything from 1995/1996 because of Diamond Sea, but if you hate that song then that would not be a right suggestion.

If you search for individual songs, especially one that they kept playing throughout the years, you can check how it would evolve over the years. Or even during a year (or tour).

Let's do Brother James: 1983, 1985, 1985, 1985, 1987,1987,1987, 1991,1992, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2008, 2010 and NYE 2010
(ignore what I just said about quality)


that was fun


my personal favourite era is 1998 when they were touring A Thousand Leaves, it actually already started in 1997 when they started playing those new songs live as instrumentals. And there was Anagrama too, I was absolutely addicted to that one.

there's the 1998 LA show on nugs.net now, one of three nights. The other two were shared on Dime a few years back.

On YT there's these from 1997:
Sessions At West 54th (http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/cc/061297.html )
Bumbershoot (http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/cc/083097.html )
and from 1998:
Sonic Youth - (Electric Factory) Philadelphia,Pa 6.5.98 (http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/cc/060598.html )
Sonic Youth [1998.06.20] Rockpalast Festival, Lorelei, Germany (http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/cc/062098.html )
Sonic Youth [1998.08.07] Benicassim, Spain ¡Incluso tiene subtítulos en español! (http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/cc/080798.html )

Thanks for all the suggestions here, I'll make sure to check them out over the weekend for when I've got time.

(Hate to be super-picky and all, but anyone have non-Dime links for the shows here? I really need to get onto it...)

welcome to the real world!


just watch out with the ratio thingy. When you immediately start downloading a bunch of old shows (especially DVD's, and with old I mean sets that have been on the tracker for a long time), you won't be able to download anything anymore until you've recovered your ratio by uploading the same amount of data.

Thanks for that _tunic_. It's getting me a little anxious, but I figure I can always ask you guys for help, right?

(you don't want to scare the new girl)
