Thurston Moore’s Chelsea Light Moving project is set to hit the road after confirming a full European tour.
Sonic Youth were a rock band. Thurston Moore is a rock guitarist. Chelsea Light Moving is an excuse for Moore to use some volume.
A new project, Chelsea Light Moving finds Thurston Moore working with some friends. Tied to Matador, the band released their self-titled debut album earlier this year to widespread acclaim.
Now they’re hitting the road. The group have confirmed plans for a major European tour, including three British dates.
Alongside this, Thurston Moore has agreed to perform a one off improvisational set at this year’s Meltdown – curated by none other than Yoko Ono.
