Sonic Youth Acoustica :: Boston, MA 2002


August 13th, 2002 Boston, Massachusetts, WERS Radio. Thurston, Lee, and Jim performed acoustic versions of “Empty Page,” “Disconnection Notice” and “Rain on Tin,” before their gig that evening, in support of the Murray Street LP. I was just queuing these up for an upcoming show — great stuff, download two of the three tracks below.

  1. I saw SY’s first (I believe) acoustic performance at the ’91 Bridge Concert in Mountain View. The performance was aborted, ending in the smashing of a guitar, stunning the audience, which probably wasn’t full of SY fans to begin with. The local media was kind of rough on them as well. I think the Tracy Chapman fans overwhelmed the SY fans by quite a bit. These tracks are great. Thanks. John Lee Hooker was allowed to play electric – with Ry Cooder.
