Sonic Youth - 30 Years of Daydream Nation at Triskel for One Night Only
Triskel are delighted to welcome to Cork Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. He'll be here with filmmaker Lance Bangs on Friday 1 March to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's much lauded album Daydream Nation.
They released Daydream Nation on 18 October 1988. The album was an immediate critical success. Robert Palmer wrote in Rolling Stone that it “presents the definitive American guitar band of the 1980s 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”.
The evening will include a panel discussion and screenings of a selection of films related to Daydream Nation, including excerpts from Bangs’ new concert film, rare and unseen gems from the band’s archive, and a new restoration of the Charles Atlas documentary Put Blood in the Music.
