They're dropping like flies! According to numerous sources (Austin Chronicle, Austin 360, Austin Sound), Sonic Youth will have to cancel both their Sunday evening ACL Festival performance, as well as their ACL Taping because of a broken wrist to guitarist Lee Renaldo. While there's no official confirmation yet from the band or their label (Matador), we'll hopefully hear an announcement from C3 in the near future regarding a replacement. Looks like we don't have to feel so guilty about seeing Dan Auerbach on Sunday evening now.
