Sonic Youth Play in small Pennsylvania Town, low turnout among yokels

"I've never even heard of Sonic Youth," said College freshman Alex Feldman, who did not attend the concert. "I didn't want to waste that much money on a band I've never heard of."

Feldman said that no one he knew had planned on attending the concert.

But there was a positive effect to having the aging Massachusetts rockers in the small little collge town they played. Lauren Sloss writes:

"I think headlining with Sonic Youth was a problem," he said.

He did like the fact that it was a "self-selected crowd -- there weren't a bunch of random, drunk, angry Penn students."
