My friends, here is the good news:
Sonic Youth is coming to town. Holy crap, right? Touring in support of their upcoming Matador release, The Eternal, the band that pretty much created indie rock—and invented the Washing Machine—is returning to Portland on July 28th, at the Roseland Theater. It'll be a teenage riot, except significantly older.
My friends, here is the bad news:
It's Sonic Fuckin' Youth, so that means it will probably sell out. We're all screwed.
My friends, here is the solution:
Pre-sale! The Monqui folks have set up this handy pre-sale link (the password: MERCURY). The pre-sale will go down this Friday (May 1st) from 10am to 5pm. After that, no more pre-sale and you are on your own.
Phew, that's a lot of info. Let's have a listen to the new Sonic Youth single:
Sonic Youth - "Sacred Trixter"
Kim and Thurston were fans of this sacred band? Good to know.
