Aye, the vintage year of 1985. Rock In Rio was the biggest festival in the world, USA For Africa was in full swing, Phil Collins released No Jacket Required, and Sonic Youth were touring the States behind the Bad Moon Rising album. Some of us were there, most of us weren't. Luckily the audio from one of these seminal mindblowing shows was captured on 4-track cassette and will soon be available for the masses.
Smart Bar Chicago 1985 CD, double LP or MP3 Download will be available on November 13th via Sonic Youth's own Goofin’ label. Pre-order HERE.
