Sonic Youth's Last Waltz?

Sonic Youth just wrapped up a few dates playing festivals in South America. With the recent depressing announcement of Kim and Thurston's divorce and no more scheduled studio time or concert dates, the future of the band is a mystery. While certainly not their best night; if this rainy Sao Paulo, Brazil show was to be their last, these videos of the complete gig show the band played with an energy and edginess that even by Sonic Youth standards, is staggering.

Sonic Youth's music has meant so much to me in the past 20+ years. I truly hope this is just a new chapter for them but sadly, my gut tells me the end has come....
