Thurston Moore is playing tonight at the Old Blue Last (38 great eastern street). On stage at 9 o'clock.
you fucking serious?
I could probably go to this.
OMG OMG OMG!
looking foward to my 1st night in since forever but if this is true I better be heading for the shower
do you NEED a shower?
Rock doesnt like Cleanliness
No guest list available...
I can't afford the train fare.
so far away
ace! let's steal a plane and go to the show.
...wish I hadn't spent my last Â£10 today.
I am weedy, narrowing my mugging targets down to pensioners. And dead pensioners isn't a problem I really need.
oh wait I missed it :(
(wooo Bristol though)
The one time I come on here late.
I hope he plays some pretentious wanky stuff so I'm not jealous.
FUCK FUCK FUCK
*calms self down* He'll play wanky stuff.
just read this.
Did anyone go?
He basically played an acoustic set of, I guess, his favourite Sonic Youth songs. He had a surprising amount of banter with the crowd and, far from what I was expecting, it was quite heartwarming. Thanks for the heads up crablin.
you know, just, it was so intimate and friendly. An atmosphere of comeraderie, you might say. Nice that he gave away the CDs rather than charging as well.
It was amazing.
I am gutted. So from this thread and the social one; 100%, Teenage Riot and The Diamond Sea.
so very jealous...that sounds lovely
That was quite glorious. I have it recorded too. Though -gen- and i-deserve... were probably rabbiting on too loudly to pick out the guitar.
That's him playing with Indoor Eagle.
You guys are so touchy...
The great, anti-hate...
i might have a little cry over not being there :'(
Or Jim O'Rourke. Shame they didn't play.
no thanks to me being stood on kilburn highr road when i received it :-(
what did we all think, in seriousness? You guys are mean.
I thought you'd be at Kill For Kicks John... I heard it was mighty.
I'll say hello one day...
Stop building up the suspense!
it'll be a hige anti climax though so be warned
Photos from last night -
repress the memory of ever having read this thread.
about 10 mins to realise there was a vocalist onstage
Looks like Ben Chasny on 2nd gtr?
Not that knowledgeable of Six Organs Of Admittance so forgot his name.
was it all a bit too much or did he leave you Thurston for Moore?
but I missed it and haven't had time to process my recording so I can listen back.
i LOVE london.
never EVER leaving.
do one of his solo drum sets? They're almost as good as Thurston..
If you check my link up there, the first few photos are of that.
I even bought an album off him.
It's nice, but most of the fun is in watching him throw household objects at his kit. Oh and the circular breathing stuff is just immense.
I have to see the Chris Corsano, Thruston Moore, Jim O'Rourke, and Paul Flaherty group live. It sounds like the best thing ever...
the circular breathing. I thought the rest of it was far from impressive.
I was impressed by loads it, the bowing of the prayer bowls (or whatever they were) and the violin-on-snare-drum contrivance. It was quite a way to play the drums!
it was SO good. i think he pulled about thirteen hundred thousand different sounds out of the one drumkit. and the assembling-a-Pipe-Thingy-in-his-mouth-one-handedly skillz were immense.
and indeed BOOM.
He span us all into his web of lies.
you'd have known already! :-p
You can't help some people. Given each Sonic Youth song takes a couple of different tunings I'd be impressed to see old Thurston bang out a set on one guitar! :D
so he didn't play "an acoustic set of his favourite Sonic Youth songs" or end with The Diamond Sea, as previously stated?
I'm considerably less jealous now.
it was still really really great.
in the fact that thurston is kinda disgusting and sweaty.
in it's original colour.
hardened gig goers into trembling awkward wrecks.
He's so... TALL and SLOW and ...
is quite beautiful. it has the lustre of a 24 year old's hair.
we stood at the front and gawped like teenagers. <3
3 more days.
WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE?
thurston moore's hair?
It dazzles and excites.
it negates ginger!
it's strawberry blond.
