Sonic Youth: 30 Years of Daydream Nation
With Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and filmmaker Lance Bangs in attendance.

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 albums lustre: It was selected to the Library of Congresss National Recording Registry in 2005, and in 2013 Consequence of Sound declared the record simply rules.

In celebration of the albums 30th anniversary, Sonic Youth, filmmaker Lance Bangs, and SY archivist Aaron Mullan, will present a program of Daydream Nation-related films. Two are rarely-screened archival pieces from 1989, in brand new restorations. Lance Bangs will also present excerpts from his new concert film of the band performing the album in its entirety in Glasgow in 2007. A few unseen gems from the bands archives will round out the bill.

PUT BLOOD IN MUSIC - 1989 documentary on the downtown New York music scene, directed by Charles Atlas. A unique collage of music, performance and commentary.

ON RUST - From Dutch Television. Sonic Youth got some of their first European exposure via Holland.

DAYDREAM NATION - Director Lance Bangs' Sonic Youth concert film presents the band performing the titular double album in Glasgow on August 21st and 22, 2007. Bangs blends HD footage shot in Glasgow with fragments of personal Super8mm and 16mm from his archives of Sonic Youth over the decades.
