Well, I can’t say i’m not surprised about this. But I can say how unhappy I am. I mean, it’s a nice space and all (UPT, see NY date below) but I don’t like sitting down for shows. And definitely not for a Sonic Youth show. If they’re in their 50s and can still fucking tour and stand on stage all night it’s only right that the audience does the same. True???
