Does that really affect the sound? Or does it just make it quieter?

I'll always remember Kim taking this girls cowboy type hat & wearing it while playing "Kool Thing". Kim is the koolest chick ever. & I remember Kim giving the mic to the audience by sticking her mic clutched hand out & letting the audience sing the lyrics to "Kool Thing". I was one of those background vocalist.

I'm loving all these stories. Keep 'em coming. I wish I had more stories to tell.
I will after Bonnaroo this June.

first SY show - 19/03/96 Vooruit, Gent Belgium

i remember being utterly excited the first time seeing them. So first up was Beck with a mighty fine solo acoustic set.
The first time i was at Lee's side and remember thurston playing the crowd and wishing i was standing at his side (sorry Lee )

Later when taping Sonic Youth shows I would almost always be lurking on Thurston's side but not then. Another thing I remember was that Thurston had the shortest haircut since the early haydays of Sonic Youth.

Oh yeah and they polayed music too: well To be honestly i still have to see a Sonic Youth concert that would outdo the first one. I still think that their setlists of the Diamond Sea era are some of the most tight lists, along with the ATL era IMO.

They kicked of with Teenage Riot and that is a mindblowing opener with the intro when all is dark and then slightly the lights came on, what follows is personal history for that matter.

Now i have a feeling that has near the excitement I had then for their set at nouveau Casino where they'll perform songs from the new album.

Set list 19/03/96
Teenage Riot
Bull in the Heather
Starfield Road
Washing Machine
No Queen Blues
Saucer Like
100%
Becuz
Eric's Trip
Diamond Sea
--
Panty Lies
Junkies Promise
--
Silver Rocket

I can't wait to see my 2nd SY show. I am going to Bonnaroo, so I'll see other acts that I like, but mainly I am going because of Sonic Youth.

SY rocked Texas 3 nights in a row back in 2004 and I was there for all of em. As for other great shows the Asburry Park show and the Hoboken shows from last year are at the top of my list to.

Rock on SY

My first gig of theirs was at the 930 club with Mike Watt some time in 98 or so. They basically played all of Thousand Leaves. Excellent show! They finished with Death Valley '69. I couldn't ask for a better song.

No, unfortunately, I only went to the HOB show. I had to opt for that one because I was being taken by my dad, since I had no other way of going. He didn't want to go to a festival, but much rather wanted to go to a small HOB concert...not that he really wanted to at all. He did end up liking them live more though.

Now I am giving my dad two options...Pearl Jam and Sonic Youth, or the Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth? He can decide. Lol...I just want to see SY again.

That must have been an excellent show. Mike Watt & SY together, you can't beat that. I really like Mike's groups, fIREHOSE, Mike's solo group, anything Mike does I really enjoy. I have Mike's solo album, "Ball-Hog Or Tugboat" where they do the cover of "Tuff Gnarl". & the album also has the song were Kathleen Hanna talks to Mike's answering machine, & she's all pissed off that Mike wanted her to be on the record. Apparently, one of Mike's band members supposidly raped one of Kathleen's friends.

It's always left me confused to. I never knew if it was serious, or something they were laying down for the record. I'm listening to that album right as I type.

It's not the actual sound frequencies that kill you, it's the intensity. If you wear cheap foam earplugs that are meant for noisy work environments, yes, it will muffle the sound a little bit but it will in no way ruin the experience. In fact, it'll enhance your listening experience because your ears won't be ringing for the next few days and you'll keep your hearing for a few more years.

I know that many musicians and stage workers do wear earplugs during their shows; they're custom, more expensive earplugs that do a better job in not muffling the sound but blocking out the intensity.

DoubleNickels ain't too shabby
First sonic Youth show was August 14, 2004, four days after my birthday. The red soxs were playing, so my dad had to take a different way through. We also decided we should get some dinner before we went to the show. The combination of the two made us late, but it was only by 3 songs. I got there in the middle of Mote, and when I heard Lee singing I got more excited than I had ever been in my life. Time literally stood still as I was swept up by the feedback and melodies, and Steve, Jim and Kim pounded rhythms into my heart. They had to end the show earlier as the clubbers had to come in, and Thurston commented on how his second concert ever was Peter Frampton, and how to stick around for "The sick disco afterwards..."

Setlist:
Burning Spear
Pattern Recognition
Disconnection Notice
Mote
New Hampshire
Dude Ranch Nurse
Sugar Kane
Mariah Carey
Stones
I Love You Golden Blue
Paper Cup Exit
White Kross
--
Unmade Bed
PCH
--
Expressway

August 20, 2004. You got a hell of a better set-list then we did. It was nothing fancy, but it was the best show of my life. 1st row, G/A.
