Chelsea Light Moving isn't a name that will jump off the calendar listings and grab attention. Thurston Moore, however, is. His new band comes on the heels of a break-up with longtime Sonic Youth collaborator (and wife) Kim Gordon, and the new band showcases a return to his loud, noisy, and punk-influenced roots. The four-piece band succeeds in large part because it is a band, not a Moore solo effort, and the skills of his cohorts shine through in songs that pay homage to 1980s punk and the New York arts scene. Enjoy this rare chance to catch the 54-year-old rocker in a small venue, before Chelsea Light Moving inevitably jumps to a larger stage. Earplugs are recommended for anyone on the West Bank. 18+.
