Hi!

does anyone know if there are going to be any opening acts on the European dates? Köln/Cologne/Koeln especially since that's where I will be going to. The E-werk site doesn't mention it. Would love to know before hand what to expect, so I can check it out a bit before going.
Plus if it's just SY, it's kind of a rip-off to see just them not performing a complete DDN show for 35 Euros in a too big venue....

At the moment I'm actually more looking forward to seeing Pearl Jam who will be playing in Nijmegen two days later. Will buy tickets for them later tonight never seen them beore, even though I love their music. Hopefully the weather will be nice that day, it's open air.

hey, i'll be going to that one as well. i haven't read anything about opening acts, i'm afraid. i've never been to the e-werk; do you think it's a too large venue for SY? btw, do you know what's the easiest way to get to e-werk from köln?

I was approached by a member of the band to support them on one of the nights. They really enjoy my intriguing blend of delta blues and avant noise.

it's on Schanzenstrasse, right next to the A3, see http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=nl&q=schanzenstrasse,+k%C3%B6ln&sll=52 .469397,5.509644&sspn=3.052125,7.470703&ie=UTF8&om =1&ll=50.970995,7.015414&spn=0.012323,0.029182&t=k &z=15&iwloc=addr
Could it be that building with the reddish roof to the right of the arrow?

I've never been there either, I had expected it to be one of those stadiums but actually seems to be OK, 2000max according to their site, but it looks quite nice ( http://s201495031.online.de/ewerk/cm...halle.html?L=1 ). There's also directions on it how to get there

Not a lot of it is confirmed yet, Thurston's talking to a few bands. Some are free to play one date but not two or three. Orphan Fairytail will be our support for a few dates, which i am super excited about.

Chernov’s choice


Tequilajazzz will be opening for Sonic Youth at Manezh Kadetskogo Korpusa on Monday. A member of the latter’s support act in Moscow 18 years ago, Igor Mosin, remembers the gig.
“They played two concerts in Moscow, and we went there, upon the recommendation of [music critic and promoter Artyom] Troitsky, I guess,” said Mosin, who played drums with the local band Bad Influence at the time.
“There were a lot of Moscow bands before us, [the promoter] probably thought that [Sonic Youth] wouldn’t pack the theater. I remember there were bands like Brigada S and Nogu Svelo, they all wore sailor’s striped shirts, played Russian garmoshkas [a kind of button accordion] and behaved foolishly on stage.”
The public did not react particularly well in either city, according to Mosin.
“It started in Leningrad, when punks in the audience started to sing ‘God Save the Queen!’ and Thurston Moore said, ‘Guys, it was 20 years ago,’ but nobody understood him and went on. I even felt that they wanted to outscream [the band] and ask them to perform this song.
“They came to listen to the punk rock that they had already heard, but it turned out to be something totally new, something noisy, a strange combination of harmonies, strange blend of sounds, very powerful. Especially at the last concert in Moscow, they adapted a little to [the lack of equipment and poor acoustics], and it was that big wave, an avalanche, and the audience just sat deafened.”
The differences between the band and the audience even got physical during the second show in Moscow, according to Mosin.
“It was again a punk-type of audience, they tried to interrupt their playing, to grab their feet and at one point somebody grabbed Kim’s leg and started to pull her from the stage.
“The public was somewhat aggressive, and the times were more aggressive than today: there was a certain grabbing reflex.
“Thurston Moore ran to them, somebody sort of hit him, he hit him back and then people tried to climb on the stage to beat them, sort of. The rumor was that after the show, some people tried to break into their dressing room, and smashed the nose of one of the organizers. So they left for the hotel pretty quickly.”
Musician and promoter Seva Gakkel was impressed by how Sonic Youth sounded.
“It was a total revelation for me; it was the first time that I came into contact with a different sound, absolutely unique in the environment where I was developing,” he said.
“Even if I had been to a considerable number of concerts by then, I’d never ever heard such sound, and it was a discovery I got from this band.”
“Keeping this reserved, cool attitude, they have had incredible energy, without any elements of making a show, of impressing the viewer. And with that they have an effect, say, on me.”
