sonic youth concert chronology // solo shit

NOTE: These dates used to be interspersed with all regular SY dates on the main pages, but it became too overwhelming so I moved them to a separate page. At some point it became clear that accurately documenting all of their side project/solo work would be a full-time job of its own, so I quit updating this section and instead encourage you to check sonicyouth.com's gig calendar archive. I basically consider this a dead section, though it does contain a lot of carefully researched information from the early days of the site.
