120 minutes – with panel discussion featuring Lance Bangs and Steve Shelley
Sonic Youth released their sixth album Daydream Nation on 18 October 1988. The album was an immediate critical success. Robert Palmer wrote in Rolling Stone that it “presents the definitive American guitar band of the 1980s at the height of its powers and prescience”. Time has not dimmed the album’s lustre: It was selected to the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry in 2005, and in 2013 Consequence of Sound declared “the record simply rules”.
In celebration of the album’s 30th anniversary, Triskel Arts Centre is delighted to welcome to Cork drummer Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth and acclaimed filmmaker Lance Bangs. The evening will include a panel discussion and screenings of a selection of films related to Daydream Nation, including excerpts from Bangs’ new concert film, rare and unseen gems from the band’s archive, and a new restoration of the Charles Atlas documentary Put Blood in the Music.
