“Rock & roll to me is everything. … I see it as a way of life, as a sort of an intellectual liberalism of being in the world.” —Thurston Moore
He cofounded Sonic Youth, altering the course of rock-and-roll by transforming punk, drone, electronic, free jazz, and art rock into thought experiments and spiritual epiphanies. During this celebration, exclusive to the Walker, Thurston Moore curates two distinct evenings of music reflecting his expansive past and current influences. In collaboration with Nels Cline, Anne Waldman, Eva Prinz, Daniel Carter, Ambrose Bye, Devin Waldman, Brian Gibson, crys cole, Steve Shelley, Deb Googe, and James Sedwards, Moore revives art-rock mash-ups and reveals rock-and-roll as inner bliss.
Moore and all of the national collaborators will perform in various configurations at the Walker’s McGuire Theater on both Friday and Saturday.
Local poets/artists are also part of the weekend performances: Dameun Strange and Danez Smith on Friday and Sun Yung Shin on Saturday.
