Chelsea Light Moving, Talk Normal, Merchandise

When: Fri., March 8, 9 p.m. 2013

Chelsea Light Moving is filled with tenuous, fractured noise and brash, discordant riffs. That's a good thing for Thurston Moore fans, as the new project's eponymous debut feels much closer to a Sonic Youth record than his serene solo compositions. Flanked by bassist Samara Lubelski, guitarist Keith Wood, and drummer John Moloney, the group passes through Atlanta as it ventures west to the organized mess that is SXSW. Although there's no end in sight for Sonic Youth's hiatus, don't mistake Chelsea Light Moving as an indulgent act Moore created to pass the time: It's a worthy substitute that stands on its own right. Either take our word for it or trust the band's self-description: "The band is ready to detonate any birthday party, wedding or hullaboo in any country, planet or stratosphere that doesn't support right wing extremist NRA sucking bozo-ology." Point taken, Thurston Moore and friends
