I was walking down St. Mark’s Place the other day and saw that a CBBG fashion store is going in at the site of the old Fillmore East. And, Hilly’s been talking about moving the legendary but now shuttered rock club to Las Vegas. So, I guess now is a good time to link to Braden King’s new Sonic Youth video, “Do You Believe in Rapture.” It’s his loving elegy to the club in all of its grimy, decaying, sticker-over-stickered, disgusting bathroom-ed glory, and it contains Super 8 footage from Jem Cohen.

Also: Claire Denis’s sensuously jittery video for another song off the same Rather Ripped album, “Incinerate.”
