sweetf2a It was one of their last shows and seems a very fitting end as the set list covers so many points of their extensive discography.
Great recording which even for a noisy band like SY helps if you're going to listen more than once. Favorite track: Death Valley '69 (Live).

Eric Schiffman This show has a great set list and a really awesome and intense performance. Aside from those two things what truly stands out about this show compared to so many live recordings is how incredibly well recorded and especially mixed it is. It sounds fantastic in headphones and on a big stereo. All the instruments are very present. I was right up front on the barrier for this one and it’s so fantastic to revisit it in such amazing quality. This recording and mixing job sets the bar high. Favorite track: Tom Violence (Live).

about

Sonic Youth live in Brooklyn, NY at the Williamsburg Waterfront -
August 12, 2011

Aside from 5 previously scheduled shows in South America in November of 2011, this was the last Sonic Youth show. The last one in the USA, anyway. We were joined by opening acts Wild Flag and Kurt Vile, both of whom played terrific sets on this day. The stage was facing the East River from the Williamsburg, Brooklyn waterfront, and I recall the sun going down in the west during our set. It was a pretty magical, if kinda weird day. Fitting, somehow, that our 'last show' should be in New York City, our home and where it all began…
