Sonic Youth are aging gracefully, continuing to put out music that pleases the mind and the body. Kim Gordon, dressed in a white dress, offset her good looks by tearing into her bass guitar. Thurston Moore sported a cheesy t-shirt and looked like a big kid up there thrashing around and abusing his guitar in the first two numbers. Lee Ranaldo jumped and yelled and they all had a great time playing their distorted rock and roll and balancing noise with some solid singing and minor-key melodies.
