With Sonic Youth on a hiatus with no end in sight, it’s not surprising that Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore have moved onto new projects. We saw Gordon’s experimental rock outfit Body/Head at Noise Pop, and now Moore’s new band, Chelsea Light Moving, is coming to the Great American Music Hall tomorrow, 3/20/13.
After more than a large handful of shows at SXSW, Chelsea Light Moving continues their tour to San Francisco. Joined by bassist Samara Lubinski, guitarist Keith Wood, and drummer John Moloney, Moore’s stylistic influences can be clearly heard on the band’s self-titled debut album released on March 4th. Chelsea Light Moving is full of scuzzy, thrashing guitar and drums, lo-fi fuzz, and ‘90s rock and jazz influences that arrive here right in time for the ‘90s rock nostalgia movement. Moore’s dark repetitive vocals, of course, are a poignant touch on the record.
We’ve got a pair of tickets to the show to give away. To win, be the first person to email firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to put “Chelsea Light Moving Giveaway” in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. Hurry, the show is tomorrow!
