Show Notes
  • Aside from 5 perviously scheduled shows in South America in November of 2011, this was the last Sonic Youth show. The last one in the USA, anyway. We were joined by opening acts Wild Flag and Kurt Vile, both of whom played terrific sets on this day. The stage was facing the East River from the Williamsburg, Brooklyn waterfront, and I recall the sun going down in the west during our set. It was a pretty magical, if kinda weird day. Fitting, somehow, that our 'last show' should be in New York City, our home and where it all began…

"This is total scorcher of a show and instantly vaults to the top of the heap of SY live recordings. All the scuzzy intensity of the Bad Moon Rising era but with the clarity & focus of late SY. First five songs are all one unbroken medley. Super clear mix from the multitracks with an excellent stereo guitar spread. It seems like the SY team is taking a lot of care in prepping these archival releases and I'm really thrilled to check out more as they come out."
