You into Sonic Youth? The new album is the best thing they've done in years. I've been listening to it for the past few months. Well, if you support your local indie music store and buy the record tomorrow you'll get a free pass to a secret show on July 8th. The only other local dates they have are with Pearl Jam (and who wants to go to the Forum)?
Here are the details:
Retailers with the special laminate passes:
Lou's - Encinitas, CA
Fingerprints - Long Beach, CA
Rhino - Claremont, CA
Mad Platter - Riverside, CA
Bionic - Huntington Beach, CA and Cypress, CA
Sea Level - Los Angeles, CA (they open at noon)
Amoeba - Los Angeles, CA (they open at 10:30 I think)
Once you purchase the album, you will receive a laminate with RSVP instructions for the show. This event is presented by Filter Magazine to celebrate its 5th Anniversary and the release of Rather Ripped. Tickets are available on a first come first serve basis so get to your local store early. Rather Ripped will be released on Geffen Records June 13th.
