SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Thurston Moore, Lido, 8pm
Though he is perhaps best known for his role—alongside ex-wife Kim Gordon—as the singer and guitarist of noise rock band Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore is also a solo artist in his own right.
After releasing three solo albums between 1995 and 2011, the latter of which came out shortly before Sonic Youth broke up, Moore is set to put out full-length number four, “The Best Day,” in September of this year.
Featuring Steve Shelley from Sonic Youth on drums, Deb Googe from My Bloody Valentine on bass, and English guitarist James Sedwards, it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to assume that it will be a bit more rock than 2011′s acoustic number, “Demolished Thoughts.” Catch the legend himself when he stops in Berlin in the middle of his European tour.Natalye Childress
