Rumor has it that the clip below might be from Sonic Youth's last concert ever. After Kim and Thurston announced their divorce last month, their publicist confirmed that the future of the band was "uncertain" after fulfilling their touring obligations. And yeah, their show last night in Sao Paolo was their last scheduled gig (tip: fast-forward to 11:00 for a disturbing rendition of "Sacred Trickster"). I'm pretty sure that no one in the band even makes eye contact with each other during the whole show. It's not looking good. This is so, so fucked. Nothing is sacred. I want to die.
