Tue 19 Jun – Sonic Youth
This was a perfect show.
I entered right when the opening acts played their last notes and didn't miss a thing.
Some highlights:Thurston Moore
is so enthusiastic about every sound he makes. Opening with the first song off Daydream Nation
sent shivers up my spine.
Then I recognized 100%
halfway through the crazy intro when everybody was still guessing the tune, and the song proved to be so sexy and concert-genic.Skip Tracer
was always special for me. But I don't think the audience much appreciated it. Although Ronaldo delivered a wild and powerful performance on this one and Hey Joni.Kim Gordon
totally made the encores with Kool Thing
which got me pogodancing all through the song. The audience again failed to sing alone: I don't wanna - I don't think so.
Kim peaked with her shamanic moves and mantra banshee singing. This song was always a great hit with me.
The second encore was just perfect a sonic sea. …
