I have no idea how true this is, but the guy leaking the lineup has been getting Perry Farrell pretty agitated on Twitter.

"Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991", the 2001 book by music writer Michael Azerrad, chronicled the birth of the U.S. indie rock movement by telling the stories of 13 of the scene’s biggest bands. That book turns 10 this year, [and to] celebrate the anniversary, Azerrad is putting on a big tribute show called Our Band Could Be Your Concert at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on May 22. Artists from today’s indie scene will cover songs by bands from the book. The lineup for this thing is already nuts, and it’s not even done yet.


The Dirty Projectors’ David Longstreth, Nat Baldwin, and Brian McOmber will cover Black Flag, St. Vincent will play Big Black, Titus Andronicus will play the Replacements, Ted Leo will play Minor Threat, tUnE-yArDs will play Sonic Youth, Dan Deacon will play the Butthole Surfers, Wye Oak will play Dinosaur Jr., Buke & Gass will play Fugazi, and Delicate Steve will play the Minutemen. More bands will also be announced later.

Crystal Castles // “Celestica [Thurston Moore Remix]”

"You got Sonic Youth in my Crystal Castles!"

"You got Crystal Castles in my Sonic Youth!"

Two great tastes that taste great together.

Sonic Youth // “What We Know” [Live for pitchfork.tv’s A>D>D series]

Dueling guitar solos from Thurston and Lee (who, by the way, really seems to be enjoying himself).

This is so good.

As promised.

Sonic Youth//”What We Know”//The Eternal

This new Sonic Youth record is so so good.

I’ll post a Kim song next…

I just spent 10 minutes picking out a song to post.

And then it told me I had already used up today’s audio post.

I forgot about the Micachu song I drunkenly posted last night at (apparently) 2:51 am.

If you’re interested, my post was going to be “Hey Joni” by Sonic Youth.  I listened to Daydream Nation today for the first time in quite a while.  I forgot how good it is.
