Monday night I took in a great Sonic Youth show here in Lawrence. In addition they were actually in town all of Sunday too, on a day off. Various Sonic Youth sitings were all over town. So let me be your local gossip hag. During the show Thurston said they took in a day of bowling. And supposedly they also went and saw the new Al Gore movie. The show itself was somewhat tame by SY standards but it did have one exceptional shock. They closed the show not with Teenage Riot, Silver Rocket, Dirty Boots, or any other "hit", but with Shaking Hell. SH is a real oldie coming from their Confusion is Sex album. It's raw and violent and came out of nowhere. I'm sure they've been playing it throughout this tour, but for someone who doesn't like to see setlists from previous shows, it was a welcome smack.
Enjoy this MP3 - Sonic Youth - Shaking Hell
