Sonic Youth at Central Park, July 4, 1992 (redux)

A partial repost of an EVG item from July 4, 2008...
On July 4, 1992, I saw Sonic Youth at SummerStage in Central Park. Sun Ra and his Intergalactic Arkestra opened. I remember SY being as frenzied as I'd ever seen them as they played a Dirty-heavy set. (The record was just about to be released.) I don't remember much else, except that I loved every minute of the afternoon. 
Missing from the previous post — a video of the 66-minute set ...
 And the setlist from the Sonic Youth website... 

01. Teenage Riot 
02. Burning Spear 
03. Dirty Boots 
04. Drunken Butterfly 
05. Theresa's Sound-World 
06. Youth Against Fascism 
07. Swimsuit Issue 
08. Orange Rolls, Angel's Spit
09. 100% 
10. Kool Thing 
11. Sugar Kane 
12. Expressway to Yr Skull 

There's a bootleg of the show here.

That show was awesome. I remember Thurston commenting that they were getting noise complaints from 5th Ave. residents and that the band should play louder.
