Man, I was super worried I wasn't going to have anything to do this July 11, but Sonic Youth have totally come through like a bunch of champs. Starting in June, they'll be touring in support of The Eternal (out June 9 on Matador), and they'll hit War Memorial Auditorium Saturday, July 11. Tickets go on sale here-ish at 10 a.m. this Saturday, May 2.

The Youth have been sharing a bitchin'--albeit relatively brief--track off of the forthcoming album with the blog circuit, and you can listen to it below. If you still haven't caught SY live and aren't sure what to expect, you can peep this video Lee Ronaldo shot "mid-jam" at Roskilde festival in 2005. It features Jim O'Rourke going nuts on what is apparently an electric measuring tape. Cool.
