Sonic Youth’s November 14 performance in Sao Paulo, Brazil, may mark the end of a 30 year history for the well-known noise rockers. Though the group has not officially confirmed that the Sao Paulo performance would be their last, statements from the group’s label, Matador Records, hints that this may be the case. Watch a video of the performance after the jump.

When the label announced in October that group member Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore were separating after nearly thirty years of marriage, they also stated that though the band would play South America, “plans beyond that tour are uncertain.”

Moore has already announced plans to hit the road in January in support in his latest LP, Demolished Thoughts. Group co-founder Lee Renaldo is set to release a new solo album, Between The Times & The Tides’ in March.

Sonic Youth’s SWU 11/14 performance setlist is as follows:
1. “Brave Men Run”
2. “Death Valley ‘69″
3. “Sacred Trickster”
4. “Calming the Snake”
5. “Mote”
6. “Cross the Breeze”
7. “Schizophrenia”
8. “Drunken Butterfly”
9. “Starfield Rd.”
10. “Flower”
11. “Sugar Kane”
12. “Teen Age Riot”
