I didn't find the sound as bad as a lot of people claim it is, but it wasn't great either.

Dino/SY tore face. I'm so glad SY played White Kross. What an amazing gig.

Wednesday is going to rawk even harder.

Yah, I thought the band sounded good--vocals got better and worse but never great. I was mostly 2nd floor rear; ymmv

Who was the opening act? I liked 'em.

I actually thought the sound was really good! We were up near Lee, maybe 5 or 6 "rows" back. I think sound often depends on where you stand.

And you were right: 3 songs from DDN. I figured they would be tired of that by now.

Anyway, glad we got to meet, and great show!

The sound=not the best
My email followups=not the best
Sonic Youth=the best

"Silver Rocket" shone a light on previously unacknowledged nooks in my
soul. "Calming the Snake" showed everyone why Kim Gordon is the hero.

Dinner and convo beforehand a treat. As per usual.

It was my first SY concert and it was amazing. Sound was fine for me since we were up against the barricade. Best part was when Thurston came right at me with his guitar and mic stand during Silver Rocket. I could have reached out and grabbed his guitar!

Issues with sound quality usually has to do with the acoustics of the interior of a building. It's pretty clear that Terminal 5 wasn't designed for holding rock concerts, hence the sound disparity.

re: sound quality

For many years, I've been using ear plugs at concerts. I really think this helps the quality of the sound. I believe, though not medically confirmed, that since I have fairly moderate tinitus, the 'dynamic range' of my ears is quite compromised. W/O the plugs, my ears would distort and obviously, the concert wouldn't sound as good.

Curious about other's perception of sound quality vs ear plugs...

And for those of you who scoff at wearing plugs, if you could hear what I hear, every waking hour of the day, you might think different... (I believe a good deal of my problem came at a Black Flag concert back in the 80s where I decided to stand in front of the speakers rather than risk the dance floor...)

Yeah, I was on Thurston's side, front row, all the way near right stage exit, so maybe that had something to do with it. The sound was good, though - a lot better than most Bowery venues anyway. I'd go there for a "rock"-based show again.

The Eternal material sounded much stronger than when I saw them in Philly earlier this summer. Setlist was very good and pretty close to what I expected. I was thrilled to hear Shadow of a Doubt, Stereo Sanctity, and White Kross.

Always cool to meet my fellow SYG homiez. Hopefully we can do it again some time. :7)

Yeah, I was pretty much right next to you SuperCreep. Did you see me? I didn't say hi because I was also with my GF for most of the show and it's always awkard to have online friends and real friends meet.

I too did not find the sound quality to be all that horrible. Sonic Youth and Dinosour Jr were both amazing bands and I almost stopped noticing. When my GF left to get earplugs she told me the sound elsewhere in the venue wasn't great but still better than what she had been anticipating.

Sorry if I was awkward at the pre-show dinner thing. It had been an exhausting afternoon.

I thought this show was worlds better than the United Theater Show. United Theater had bass bouncing off everthing. Was great to see they changed the other material from that show. Would love to see less Eternal material Wed but it's the new record so like most things in life i won't be getting my way. But hell it's another SY show so i'll be happy with whatever they play

I saw you! You were like...right next to me or two persons next to me. I hope my spazzing out didn't ruin yr video. I also think I remembered yr gf from outside the Philly gig, so I chose not to butt in between acts/songs/whatever. It's cool, though. I'm down with the "Worlds Theory."

This show was so good I didn't even mind being in the middle of a crowd.
Usually the very prospect makes me apoplectic.

Yeah, haha. She was really sick at the Philli show, I felt kinda bad. Actually, a number of my friends who were at that show got sick. Another dude started throwing up in the bathroom. It was strange.

I meant to talk to you and ask if you remembered me when we met kim/thurston but there wasn't really a good time.

Anywho, this show was definitely a lot better.

I really enjoyed last night's show. I was in various locations in the venue. My fav. spot was 3rd balcony, Thurston side, about halfway back. Great sound up there. Massage the History sounded great, Silver Rocket I was losin' my shit!!!!! I did not mind the DDN songs and yes, White Kross was a real surprise. One of my fav. SY show's here in NYC in over a decade. They sounded so good and tight.
