Sonic Youth @ Red Rocks, Morrison CO, 1992-09-21

This is kind of exciting for me.  I went to this show back in 92 way before I was making recordings of shows or had even thought that it was something I would do.

I met Lantz at a Drive Like Jehu show a few years about and he might have mentioned that he had some tapes.  I can't recall.  A couple years later he emails me saying he has a box of live cassette tapes and wanted to know if I could do some transfers.

He had a bunch of great stuff from the late 80s early 90s including this Sonic Youth show at Rec Rocks.  So I agreed to take on the project.  Watch out for a bunch of posts from this box of tapes in the near future.

I recall that I went to see this show mostly because I was a big Primus fan at the time.  They were touring behind Seas Of Cheese still. But I was curious to see all the bands.  I recall being pretty blown away by Sonic Youth.  Super fun to be able to relive that show after so many years.

Latnz did a really nice job capturing this show.  Which is not always so easy at Red Rocks.  Enjoy.
