Chelsea Light Moving was fucking rad tonight. They're a very loose and carefree band live, as evidenced by Thurston's heavy doses of random banter. This really felt like the weight and expectations of Sonic Youth have been lifted from his shoulders, and now he's just enjoying himself and having fun. They did an impromptu sorta-cover of Machine by Black Flag...Thurston was really the only one who knew it and forgot to tell the band he intended to cover it, so it was pretty hilarious watching them stumble through it. Alighted and Frank O' Hara hit were stupendous. They ended with an extended noise jam that was awesome as well. Really glad I went overall, I do get the sense that I like the album more than most around here, but hey, who knows how many more times we'll get a chance to see Thurston make some racket before he hangs it up?
DID ANYONE GO SEE FRANK BLACK LAST NIGHT AT THE MINT?! I feel like for being such a huge The Pixies fan I been failing to actually seening them lately.Yet I want to hear more about these new songs/possible new album

I thought Chelsea Light Moving ruled when I saw them too, as did Ty Pennington, who was a few people down from me (WTF?). Thurston was loose and chatty, it was their third show ever (I think that's what he said), and he walked out the front door of the venue while playing a final noise solo. I was against the stage and could see the band trying to figure out what he was doing and if they were done, it was both awesome and funny. http://nophotobadge.tumblr.com/post/...ing-knights-of
