Saw Sonic Youth at McCarren Pool last night. They opened with two brand new numbers, then went back to “Burning Spear,” their very first song.
Thurston demanded that the audience throw beach balls at his head, but I only saw one hit Lee.
Mark Ibold of Pavement kicked it on bass.
“Expressway to Yr Skull” fittingly ended the pool’s time as a music venue.
