Sonic Youth are restoring all their ‘Daydream Nation’ videos in celebration of its 30th birthday

UPDATE: They’ve just uploaded the restored video for Candle. Check it out below.

Sonic Youth have been busy organising a bunch of celebrations in honour of the 30th birthday of their iconic 1988 album, Daydream Nation.

Most of these are taking place in the States, including a run of live conversations and film screenings. However, they’ve also been uploading restored versions of Daydream Nation-era film clips so that the rest of the world can get amongst the celebrations.

So far Teen Age Riot and Silver Rocket have been re-uploaded to Sonic Youth’s YouTube account, each with restored audio and video.

This leaves the videos for Providence and Candle, which you can probably expect in the next couple of days. Check out Teen Age Riot and Silver Rocket below.

If you do live in the States, the “30 Years of Daydream Nation” film events will be taking place in Portland, LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Philly, and Brooklyn. Check out Sonic Youth’s website for more details. And check out the trailer for the L.A event below.
