For the first time in a decade, Sonic Youth’s live Battery Park, NYC: July 4 2008 record will be made available to the general public, also marking the first time it will be streaming online.
“Culled from their show at Battery Park’s River To River Festival, the setlist spans the band’s 30-year career,” reads Sonic Youth’s description of the release. Battery Park, NYC: July 4 2008 will be released on June 7, and Sonic Youth will also be offering a discount on their final album The Eternal through June 14 (the live record was originally packaged as a bonus disc alongside The Eternal).
