Sonic Youth Playing Live on the Levee -- Yes, That's a Free Show Under the Arch -- on July 17


The rumors floating around town are true: Sonic Youth will be playing a free show under the Arch on Friday, July 17, as part of this year's Live on the Levee series of concerts. (Full disclosure: The RFT is a media partner of Live on the Levee.) Opening is Awesome Color.

Live on the Levee (and Fair St. Louis) will be taking place on the Budweiser Main Stage on the riverfront levee this year, after flooding forced the annual event inland last year. Here's a link to that new Sonic Youth MP3 I posted recently.

Oh, and I'll have the entire Live on the Levee and Fair St. Louis line-up here tomorrow at noon. Any guesses of other acts playing? Who's on your wish list?
