Ask anybody. I go into the chat and randomly shout "Sonic Youth!"

They're going to be amazing.

I have not seen them since '95 in Michigan. Great live show. I missed out in England and gave up my tickets. I should have waited a few more days.

I'd start with Murray Street. It's more accessible than their earlier stuff, and is still fuckin awesome.

I saw them open for Pearl Jam twice in SFO ... they were fantastic ... opened both nights with "Incinerate" off the new album which I find to be a freakin' fantastic tune ... only had about 9-10 songs ... about what they'd play @ Coachella I'd assume.

I saw them 3 times just this past tour they did. Im getting really sick of their Rather Ripped material but they are awesome in general!

Evol/Sister/Daydream Nation is a perfect stretch of recording, but sometimes hard for people to get into. If you like what you hear from them, check out those three albums. THey are amongst the best albums of all time.

Not a Sonic Youth fan, but they held their own opening for PJ last summer. It was crazy seeing Kim Gordon from far away. You would have thought she was like 25 years old with the energy she had. Seeing her 60 year old mug on a magazine a month later was so strange.

I've only listened to daydream nation and washing machine but this is one of the acts im most excited about. I hear tell their performances are excellent.

I wasn't impressed with them live opening for Pearl Jam at the forum. I might suggest catching another band if possible.

you might end up suggesting bands like pearl jam, though.

Zing!

Oh, and I hope they play Disappearer. But I'm sure they'll at least play Teenage Riot or Expressway.

The show I went to they played all of Rather Ripped except for one song (you should just buy that because it's great and fun to dance around to) and they played these oldies:
Teenage Riot
World Looks Red
Shaking Hell
Candle
Eric's Trip

And they've been playing these songs too..
100%
Kool Thing
Expressway to Yr. SKull
Mote
Catholic Block
ALL amazing songs. Check em out, yo
