Synopsis by Mark Deming

In January of 1985, experimental New York rockers Sonic Youth played their first show in California as part of a special outdoor festival held in the Mojave Desert, the Gila Monster Jamboree. This video captures Sonic Youth's West Coast debut in glorious black-and-white; the band's nine-song set list includes "Brave Men Run," "Death Valley '69," "Brother James," "Flower," and "I Love Her All the Time."
