Level 28
Teen Age Riot/Sonic Youth/Daydream Nation

The first Sonic Youth I actually paid attention to, other than hearing snippets of Dirty Boots randomly. I first heard the song on the box set "Left of the Dial: Dispatches from the 80's Underground", starting my love for SY.

When I sat, put the headphones on and listened to Daydream Nation, I almost shit myself at how amazing it truly is. In an album full of highlights and career-defining heroics (guitar and drum-wise), this always seemed to stick in my brain for the longest.

I was (beyond description) excited to see Sonic Youth live last year at Bonnaroo. Sunday, 6:30 finally came, and they took the stage. Going through material from Rather Ripped for the most part (duh), I kept wanting to hear them play Teen Age Riot. Towards the end of the set a guy standing beside me (about encore-time) yells, "TEEN AGE RIOT, SONIC FUCK!", and I smiled big, thinking, surely, they will play it.

They didn't, but they did do Expressway to Yr. Skull with Stephen Malkmus (which was extremely cool, I'll admit), I still felt (slightly) betrayed that they didn't play anything from Sister or Daydream Nation, not even fucking Schizophrenia. Goddammit, if I had heard Schizophrenia live, that could almost make up for them NOT playing this song.

"It better work out
I hope it works out my way
'Cause it's getting kind of quiet in my city's head
Takes a teen age riot to get me out of bed right now"

Small town Arkansas life, rare to find a Sonic Youth fan, and when I do.. I gleefully discuss the genius I find in all of their albums (even NYC Ghosts and Experimental Jet Set have their moments, admit it), but always revert back to Teen Age Riot.

I love Thurston Moore, and I totally made contact with him, Kim and Lee.

I think Kim digs me?
