Well, no run-ins with the band last night, but my friend Matt and I did see Steven Soderbergh.
The set list was exclusively from three albums: Rather Ripped, of course (every song but "Sleeping Around," which is too bad, because I love that song), Confusion Is Sex, of all things ("World Looks Red" and "Shaking Hell"), and Daydream Nation ("Candle," "Eric's Trip," and "Teen Age Riot," THANK YOU!).
I spent the whole concert putting in my earplugs and taking them out, which is what I tend to do nowadays at concerts. Every time they did a Daydream Nation song, I thought to myself, "screw my hearing!"
This is my fourth SY concert, and it was a nice bit of symmetry to end the first encore with "Teen Age Riot," since it was the first song they played the first time I saw them in concert, back in 1995 at the New Daisy in Memphis. I got a little sentimental.
Kim looked stunning in her 80s retro shiny gold belted mini-dress, and at the end of the main set, Thurston and Lee did a little feedbacky guitar tango followed by some full-on fret frottage (how's that for alliteration, Isherwood??) HOT.
I LOVE YOU SONIC YOUTH!
