WANT TO COLLECT LIVE SONIC YOUTH SHOWS BUT DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START?
TRY HERE - an incredible collection of a wide variety of live sonic gigs from their entire career, with NO QUALITY LOSS. Woooo! So if you download any shows, which I encourage you to do (perhaps I'll post my list of favorites some day), please don't convert them to mp3/etc for anything other than your own convenience (in other words, don't fuck up shit that people worked very hard to preserve and provide to you at no cost with only the expectation that you respect their hard work, OKAY?)
The concert chronology is very pro-recording and eagerly endorses the distribution of live sonic youth material, particularly if you have any shows that you taped yourself, or know are not currently circulating. If there's no set list on this page, that's a good indication that the show may not be circulating. Please contact me if you have any recordings you think might be of interest!
BUTTHOLE SURFERS LIVE DISCO -- Jimi's put a lot of work into thoroughly archiving the Butthole Surfers concert/studio recording history, and is the perfect guy to contact if you have any rare or uncirculated Butthole Surfers/assorted recordings or information. PLEASE help him out if you can. Even just memories help!
NIRVANA LIVE GUIDE -- Mike and Kris are true examples of what online historians should be, relentlessly seeking to discover and document any information pertaining to NIRVANA's concert history/recording material. If you have any rare or uncirculated Nirvana/assorted recordings or information that you could offer, please help them out. They've endlessly supported the communities of many bands with their efforts, including this very site.
Please see the LINKS section for more band references, these guys just work amazingly hard and any potential lead I can send their way is the least I can offer. Thanks guys!
psychic hearts go out to you all... xx chris.
