Experimental, Indie Rock, Punk, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Rock’n’roll alchemist Thurston Moore turned 60 in July, prompting this unique marking of his waning youth. Sonic Youth, the experimental art-punk band the guitarist/singer co-founded in 1981, itself waned after 30 years, along with Moore’s marriage to bandmate Kim Gordon. Moore’s subsequent eclectic projects include a quartet (SY drummer Steve Shelley, James Sedwards, Deb Googe) that will be among myriad New York and Twin Cities avant-garde/rock/jazz musicians/poets who will collaborate here. Distinct nightly sets promise to explore Moore’s vast influences, elevating rock’n’roll consciousness.
