GOODBYE 21ST CENTURY
Add an extra increment of homecoming here for Sonic Youth, whose Murray Street studio sat for years just a few blocks north of Battery Parkone more crease in the tight fabric that binds the band to NYC. In David Brownes excellent recent bio, Goodbye 20th Century, one of the big themes is the long, gradual acclimation of the quartet to its place in the universe: Theyll never be famous, not really, but they can always count on citywide ecstasy just by showing up. On a cluttered Fourth of July, this show will without a doubt be the biggest thing happening around town. Indie heroes the Feelies open up, pay homage.
