Sonic Youth - New Hampshire

Although I didn't go, I followed some of the Austin City Limits Festival online. I've been a longtime fan of the Austin City Limits PBS show and the line-up was pretty good, but huge outdoor festivals aren't really my thing. I'm spoiled for good by seeing the same great bands at much smaller venues. For example, I've seen The Strokes a few times before their hiatus and doubt that an extra 60,000 people would add to my enjoyment.

I read some great reviews of the Sonic Youth set on Friday (and at a smaller venue on Saturday) and later discovered that they had a song called "New Hampshire" on

Johnny Winter
Johnny Winter no-show
B.B. King just turns on
The New Hampshire boys
Steve and Joe
They're gonna lead on
They're doin' it for life

It does mention legendary bluesmen Johnny Winter, BB King. The NH boys, I assume, are Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith. How cool is that?
