Stuck in Vermont 5: Sonic Youth

What on earth were Sonic Youth doing in Vermont you may ask?  Beats me but I think it has something to do with Higher Ground being AWESOME!  Oh yeah!

At long last, below is the Sonic Youth vlog detailing the post-show activities Sunday night at Higher Ground. This show kicked some major VT ass.   What could be more inspiring than seeing/hearing artists still rocking the crap out of life decades into their career?  Hells yeah.

And what other band asks the audience for book recommendations mid-show?  A rock band that reads?  They are one of a kind, yes siree.

Thanks Sonic Youth.  You made it okay to:
Ask scary hipsters questions on camera.

Thanks to Sonic Youth for coming to VT, to Higher Ground for bringing them here, to JDK for making their super cool, thought-inspiring posters and to all the psyched SY fans who talked to me after the show (many of whom were Canadian...hmmm).

This marks the first episode of Stuck in Vermont that "officially" falls under the grand auspices of Seven Days - the hottest paper in town if you ask me.  It is a partnership I am super excited about and there is no where else STVT would rather live! So be on the look out for many more Stuck in Vermont vlogs about local artists, events and shows!

That is the thing about VT, even when you are buried under a mountain of snow, it isn't so bad because there is so much to do while you are stuck, waiting for the snow to melt...

And on a legal note, a huge thanks to Sonic Youth for letting me use their killer song "Incinerate" off their hellah hot new album Rather Ripped and also to Geffen Records, Universal Music Enterprises and Silva Artist Management for filling out all the very complicated paperwork and giving me a much needed lesson in music copyright laws.

And to the Jennifers at UMe and SAM for making all this happen - and in record time!! You are both getting VT care packages in the mail - in fact, they went out today - maple syrup and VT swag galore. Oh yes, beware the VT boxes wrapped in plastic (the guy at the post office got a little over excited about the prospect of the syrup leaking!) and headed out to sunny old LA!

PS Kim Gordon is my Superhero.  Can I grow up to be her?  Now?
