More information about Daydream Nation: A Sonic Youth Concert Film tickets

Sonic Youth released their sixth album Daydream Nation on October 18,1988. The album was an immediate critical success. Robert Palmer wrote in Rolling Stone that it “presents the definitive American guitar band of the Eighties at the height of its powers and prescience”. Time has not dimmed the album’s lustre: It was selected to the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry in 2005, and in 2013 Consequence of Sound declared “the record simply rules.”

In celebration of the album’s 30th anniversary, Sonic Youth & filmmaker Lance Bangs will present a program of Daydream Nation-related films. Daydream-era documentary Put Blood in the Music will be shown in a brand-new, restored transfer. Lance Bangs will also present excerpts from his new concert film of the band performing the album in its entirety. 
 
Featuring live Q&A with Thurston Moore, Steve Shelley, Lance Bangs and Dave Haslam.
