At the beginning of the Burlington, VT show Thurston tried to go right into the opening for "Candle" but fucked up because his guitar was improperly tuned. So he twiddled around for a very uncomfortable minute while Kim explained what was up. Then without hesitation they did a really beautiful rendition of "Candle" and tore the whole show up with lots of jamming and noise for three hours or so (?). They are no longer a youth that is sonic, but their sound is still good and young.

and Portland 06 which Lee came on here and said was the best show of the tour, if you haven't heard it, get a copy

I remember Jim wearing that cardigan. It was flipping hot as hell, one of the hottest summer days that year.

By the way, do you happen to have a video bootleg of that show that includes the encore? I got a video of the show, but the person who taped it left before the encore, or didn't film the encore. Totally lame.

when i saw thurston play a solo show in nyc. he stopped in the middle of his set to talk to the audience. saying how he takes off his wedding ring so it wouldnt get in the way of his playing. then saying how kim was in LA and just basically having a conversation with the audience for a good amount of time.

just seeing him RIGHT in front of us was insane for me and my girlfriend. its also awesome when he shoots down a look at you as he plays

My first SY show was in '93 at the now-defunct Academy Theatre in NYC. I got up near the stage on Thurston's side, and then they opened with Cotton Crown. Totally unpredictable, and the PERFECT song for my first live SY experience.

Toronto 2004 - Thurston joking that Lee was a Nicholas Sparks fan, sitting on guitar amp and thrusting guitar into it during 'Pattern Recognition' noise outro,.... loud as fuck.

Toronto 2006- Lee saying it was best show of year (I hope he doesn't always do this...he was smiling during the whole show) + the whole SY gang hanging out walkin' around the venue before the show. I saw Lee grab a cab... (my theory is he was going to buy the screwdriver for 'World Looks Red')

Coachella 07- Candle, Mote- simply anihilating all sorts of douches.

Seein them at the Filmore waas cool that was a rockin night.

In 2004 I was up front at a show in VA and I got in to it with some asshole.

After a bouncer pulled the guy out Thurston made some comments and said thankx so I guess that was pretty cool to.

I've seen a lot of other cool shit to I guess that happens when ya see a band 24 times.

Its always a good time at a SY show.

I love the noise part of Silver rocket from the live video from night music.
That was just wow to me, the way they manage to get the song back on track and finish it influenced my musical direction.

Hearing the opening strums of "Expressway" at one of the Rather Ripped shows was pretty special. And that was just after they had played "Shaking Hell".

Phenomenal gig.



She Is Not Alone on the 99 tours was great too

The second Brighton beach gig when they played Expressway still haunts me to this day... I remember looking up at the sky and drifting on the outro... the sea behind... and the band in front.

Pure bliss.
