January 25, 2008
The documentary Sonic Youth: Sleeping Nights Awake, directed by Michael Albright, will be screened on the 2008 AFI Dallas International Film Festival. The film features 9 Sonic Youth songs, all performed live on July 4th 2006 in Reno, NV. The entire film is shot by seven teenagers and features candid interviews with the band, intimate backstage footage, etc.
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
