Sao Paulo 2011 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the SWU Music and Arts Festival, Sao Paulo, Brazil; November 14, 2011. Very good soundboard.
In October 2011, when Matador Records reported that while Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon were separating, the label’s statement noted the band would still play South America, but that “plans beyond that tour are uncertain.” For those who had followed Sonic Youth, this is the group’s last concert - not exactly going out with a bang but fans would no doubt want a copy of this. At least they will have those shards of noize and feedback at the end of Teenage Riot.
While a lossless audience recording of this show has circulated, this soundboard version (unfortunately offered lossy) came from the kind folks at livebootlegconcert.blogspot - many thanks! It is probably extracted from a TV broadcast.
Thanks also to craig61 for the front cover (modified here).
