That was classic. When Thurston said that his face looked like he was having a blast. I wish I had that part on video.

It was really hard to meet the band because they were constantly talking to people. So I just kind of shook their hand and said great show. Lee seemed really cool, though. He actually looked happy to hear me say that, even though I'm sure it was the 800th time he heard it that night. Kim seemed pretty distracted and didn't really say anything. Thurston just said "hey" and laughed; kind of awkward. Steve was talking to people when I saw him and I couldn't find him after that. But it was a good experience.

I actually liked Awesome Color. Even the random singer guy that I didn't even know was in the band. They were fun, and if I hadn't been anxiously awaiting SY I would have thoroughly enjoyed it. The drummer seemed like an interesting person. She looks 15. The guitarist was great. At one point he just started drinking a beer while strumming randomly, and then started using the bottle as slide. His strap fell off half way through a song and he made the best of it, which was cool. Turned it into a show. The singer was...Different. I thought he was really entertaining, but I can't really begin to describe him.

I don't think that he was officially in the band. I bought their CD, and there are only 3 people in the band, and some people that added stuff to songs. There is only one song that has additional vocals, I can't read the name because Derek (the singer) signed over that spot. Maybe he is just a friend.I got all 3 of them to sign my CD. Allison, the drummer, was super nice. She was really cool, she asked me my name, and talked to me a little about the show. Her drumming reminded me how much I wanted to buy a drum set and started learning drums, so I've been looking around for a kit. The CD is a bit repetative, but it's rockin'.

I think it was Kim's. She drank a little bit out of it.
If you drink it, you'll get 'Kim' powers.

I like Lee's hair!

And at any rate, it is much better than J Mascis' hair.

Great show, I really liked the venue apart from the heat. I wish they could have 'jammed' a bit more, but I guess Rather Ripped isn't that kind of album. I thought the sound was really good though, especially the loud drums in the mix. I guess I sort of hoped they might pull out a few surprises being a "secret show" but I like the new album so it wasn't a big deal. I left with a new (renewed) excitement for Sonic Youth.

Also, the Awesome Color drummer seemed to constantly smile as she played...reminded me a bit of the youngest Hanson, not in a bad way.

P.S. Wasn't it something like "In 1982 at Al's Bar?" May have heard it wrong myself, but...

My same thought at the start, but I remembered that the show was being brodcasted live on the radio, and they had to be done at midnight. For example, their set was originally going to include "Neutral," but they ran short on time.

At least we got to hear "Eric's Trip" y'know?

I bet you if they weren't brodcasting it on the radio, they would've done a little more "experimenting"

oh well...it's fuckin' Sonic Youth!

"Hey, it's nice to be back downtown again. I think the last time we were here was in 1982 at Al's Bar. That's right. We just went over and saw Ed Colvers' uh photography exhibition at the brewery, which is on Main Street."

I saw him in the crowd. My friend saw him when he came up to Thurston & Watt to say hello during AC (who were standing right in front of us), and then went back to his date, who, for a time, we were certain was PJ Harvey...turned out to be someone who just looked a lot like her from the back.
Also spotted: Eric Erlandson from Hole. He's at pretty much every show in LA, though.

Was Vincent Gallo trying to prostitute himself out or sell people his sperm? Thats the only reason I can think of why he would be there.

Or perhaps he's got deep connections with the New York Art scene of old, and likes Sonic Youth?
