Sonic Youth Cancels September Wiltern Show Due to ... Tennis Accident

He's a weird non-sequitur. Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo broke his wrist playing ... tennis. As a result, the band has been forced to postpone its upcoming west coast tour until January. That means that the September 29 date at the Wiltern isn't happening. The new date at the Wiltern will be January 9. (Unfortunately, the Sept. 26 show at the Santa Barbara Bowl has been canceled, and won't be rescheduled.) Here's hoping Ranaldo a speedy return, and a streamlined backhand.
