As previously reported, Sonic Youth will release a rare recording of their 1985 show at Chicago’s Smart Bar on November 14th via the band’s own label Goofin’ Records. As a first listen, Slicing Up Eyeballs points us to the live album version of “Intro/Brave Men Run (In My Family)”, which you can stream below.

The performance was recorded on four-track cassette and includes material from 1985’s Bad Moon Rising, early versions of “Secret Girl” and “Expressway to Yr Skull”, and a rare never before released live rendition of “Kat ‘N’ Hat.”
