Sonic Youth :: Boston, MA @ WERS ’02 (Acoustic)

Without giving too much away, let’s just say you will be reading a lot about Sonic Youth’s Murray Street on AD in the near future.   On August 13, 2002, WERS Radio in Boston hosted Thurston, Lee, and Jim as they performed acoustic versions of the first three tracks off Murray Street’s side A: “Empty Page,” “Disconnection Notice” and “Rain on Tin,” (which, by the way, is one of the best sides of the past ten years). I still reach for these renditions all the time. Essential.
