Win Tix 2C Thurston Moore’s Chelsea Light Moving!

Time waits for no man, not even Thurston Moore, the Dorian Gray of indie-rock. After 32 years, Sonic Youth is over. So, too, is his marriage to SY bassist/alt-rock gadlfy Kim Gordon. Daughter Cocoa is coming up on 19. What to do? Start a new band, of course. What to call it? Something very New York-y and stoner-friendly. How about Chelsea Light Moving? Done. What’s it gonnna sound like? A less noisy, more rockist SY, minus Kim Gordon’s kitten-in-a-dryer caterwauling? Pretty much. Chelsea Light Moving’s self-titled debut dropped early last month. What now? Tour, of course. All of which is a roundabout way of saying Chelsea Light Moving is playing Union Transfer tomorrow night and we have a pair of tickets to give to the 24th lucky reader to sign up for our mailing list (SEE RIGHT, under the masthead). You want to do this — it puts you top of the list for special show announcements and ticket giveaways. And we’ll never share your information. So sign up, and then send us an email with the words CALL THURSTON MOORE! in the subject line. Hurry. While supplies last. Good luck and godspeed!
