Sonic youth

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


In their very own genre, Sonic Youth is probably the most legendary act den Atelier is ever having the honour to host, alongside Kraftwerk back in 2002. Their “indie guitar swing” has influenced generations of musicians over the last decades and without them, Nirvana would never have existed, according to the late Kurt Cobain. Up to this day, Sonic Youth is one of the most respected alternative bands in the world and you should consider them the true heirs of The Velvet Underground when we’re talking about “cool credibility”. The band from New York has become a true rock institution over the course of the years and they will stand forever for edgy experimentalism coming out of the big city.
