Thurston Moore must’ve gotten bored really fast after Sonic Youth officially broke up in 2011. Why? Because he’s already skipped past his solo work and moved right on to another band, Chelsea Light Moving. The band describe themselves as “Burroughs rock,” in reference to the famous Beat Generation writer, William S. Burroughs. And, well, maybe it’s just a coincidence, but we think “Burroughs rock” kind of sounds an awful lot like Sonic Youth. Then again, Sonic Youth never wrote a song directly about Burroughs, and Chelsea Light Moving won’t have Kim Gordon’s throaty whine. Why don’t you be the judge?
Chelsea Light Moving will perform Wednesday (May 15) at 8 PM at Club Helsinki (405 Columbia St., Hudson). Tickets are $20. For more info, call 828-4800.
