Somthing Else to Look Forward to in Summer '07
Just a teeny bit shy of Daydream Nation's twenty-year anniversary in June, Sonic Youth is hitting up festivals this summer with their performance of their classic album, in its entirety. Their first stop is in Chicago on July 13th as part of the Pitchfork Music Festival in collaboration with ATP's Don't Look Back Series. From there, the foursome (Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, and Steve Shelley) will move onto dates in Berkeley, Los Angeles, Munich, Berlin and three shows in London.
This is all in accordance with their June re-release of Daydream Nation in a deluxe two disc format complete with liner notes and bonus tracks.
Originally released in 1988, Daydream Nation was the group's sixth album and the last to be released on an independent label. The double album hit critical acclaim and was hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the best albums of the eighties.
