Grunge icons Sonic Youth are planning to give legendary New York club CBGB a thrilling send-off when they kick off their upcoming US tour at the venue. The punk club is set to close later this year (06) after the owners lost a leasing battle with landlords last year (05), but Sonic Youth are making sure the place goes out in style. The group plans to launch its summer (06) tour with a 13 June (06) show at the club. It will be Sonic Youth's first performance at CBGB since 1992.
