What a show. The sound was fantastic. You could here the vocals every bit as well as the guitars. Enjoyed the addition of a full time bass player which left to play more ryuthm and some lead. Everybody was point on from the minute they hit the stage till they left. I was off right from the get-go but the first song that got me out of my seat was Antenna. Most amazing thing was History of the Message the last minute or so as they let the guitars just wined down you could have heard a pin drop not one person in the place was making a peep. Because of the sound and their playing be dead on it was the best show I've seen by them. Maybe not the best playlist but the rest of it spot on even the lights were simple but effective and enhancing.

Sound on the floor was different. Vocals not clear most the time. But I guess you cant have your cake and eat it too. I was there both nights front center, but maybe I should of sat in mezz 1 of those nights. Next time.

Don't know which night you went. I went Monday night, and had the same experience with the pin drop thing. It was especially transcendant on "Shadow of a Doubt". It was beautifully done.

What a great show.... Drove down from Montreal to see their Sunday show, and it was worth every penny! My first Sonic Youth show, and it was everything I expected. Loud, the sound was fantastic, the feel was great... I had GA tickets.

Too bad I can't drive down to NY for their next show...


For those of you that were there on the Sunday, what did you think of the feelies? I wasn't too impressed.

the guy doing sound for The Feelies hated it:

btw, i thought The Feelies were great. if you like that sort of music, you will dig it (jittery guitar riffs). they sounded just as good as in the early 90s.

I went to the second night with the pups and it was a great show. Meat Puppets come off as more psychedelic live and sound tighter than they ever had before. SY played a raucous set with personal favs Antenna, anti-orgasm and walkin bue (more lee please). After hearing Massage the History live I know appreciate it more than I ever did on the record. The nods back to Evol were cool but as i look at the previous night's setlist with Cross the breeze, the sprawl and death valley 69! goddamn man i should have bought tix for both shows!

Are there any copies of either of the show from Boston floating around yet?
