He redefined modern music as the co-founder of seminal New York City no wave four-piece Sonic Youth, a band who paved the way for Nirvana and were instrumental in the alt-rock US scene. Now the Thurston Moore Band will hit Australia and New Zealand this December.
From his own critically acclaimed solo albums, to signing artists like Andrew WK, Violent Soho and Be Your Own Pet to his Ecstatic Peace! record label, to collaborations with icons such as Yoko Ono and Beck, and compositions preserved by the US Library of Congress (Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation), Thurston Moore is a true sonic explorer.
Live on stage, Moore will be performing tracks from The Best Day as well as older favourites including much-loved Sonic Youth songs, meaning fans will get their first chance to see Moore and Shelley up on stage together since the group’s final Daydream Nation tour back in 2007.
The Thurston Moore Band will hit the Prince Bandroom on Thursday 10 December.
