"Sonic Youth Came to China", Venturing to Even More Remote Texas

Check out the new video that just popped up on YouTube from Split Works. Clocking in at just short of 10 minutes, it chronicles Sonic Youth's recent first show(s) in China.



As Pitchfork reported earlier, the band will also be coming to an area that is almost as remote as China. Yes, they will be hitting Texas on their tour. You can catch the band at one of three dates in the beginning of October. Their
Marfa stop (everyone has been going there...) will be at Thunderbird Hotel (??) and it will be free, in conjunction with the Chianti Open House Weekend. So, if you feel like driving a good 7 or so hours from Dallas for that, then good luck! Otherwise you can catch them here at the House of Blues. Pre-Sale for the Texas dates starts June 27th.
