I’m not going to see Sonic Youth this year…but I’m on the list for Megafaun

Yes, my instinct for the marginal is in full flare this week, but I do have a couple of interesting pieces to share.

First I dive deep into alt.rock history in a Flavorwire piece on bands that have opened for Sonic Youth.

I couldn’t get on SY’s guest list if I tried, but I am sort of psyched about seeing Bowerbirds and Megafaun later this week. My review of Bowerbirds’ Upper Air runs today at Dusted.

“Northern Lights”

I saw a bunch of folks link to that Flavorwire piece. Very nice.

I saw SY here in Richmond this month and the turn out was good. While I'm glad they came to town, it wasn't my favorite SY show ever.

Hey, Jack, thanks.

I think Boston was the closest show, and that seems like kind of a haul. They play around here once in a while. I'll probably just wait for that.

I like the new record. What was missing at the show?
