Thurston Moore on the 'Station to Station' tour (more by Lukas Hodge)
Thurston Moore

As discussed, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore is playing two New Year's Eve shows at The Stone, an early one with John Zorn, and a late one with Mike Watt. Since we last spoke, we realized those shows are actually part of Thurston's residency at the venue, which kicks off on NYE and continues through January 5. He's curating for the week, and also performing with different collaborators each night.

Most notably, the residency has him performing with Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley for two shows on 1/3, with Chelsea Light Moving drummer John Moloney for two shows on 1/4, and with another CLM member, Samara Lubelski, on 1/2. Probably don't expect Sonic Youth or Chelsea Light Moving songs though. He'll also be performing with NYC experimental duo White Out (who have releases on Thurston's Ecstatic Peace label) on the final night (1/5). The full schedule and an updated list of Chelsea Light Moving tour dates are below.

Meanwhile, as we speak, avant guitarist/banjoist Eugene Chadbourne's residency at the venue is underway. It kicked off this past Tuesday (10/29) and included his Halloween show at the venue last night (10/31). It continues with Eugene playing as a duo with Tatsuya Nakatani tonight (11/1), solo on Saturday (11/2), and as part of a 5-piece on Sunday (11/3).

Most of the other Nov/Dec curators are all notable jazz musicians and improvisers. One that's especially exciting to us is Ikue Mori, drummer of seminal no wave band DNA, 1/3 of Death Ambient (with Fred Frith and Kato Hideki), and a frequent collaborator of John Zorn, Mike Patton, various members of Sonic Youth, and more. She curates/performs at The Stone from December 17-22 and collaborators for the week include Zeena Parkins, Fred Frith, Sylvie Courvoisier, John Zorn and more, plus a "SPECIAL SURPRISE BAND" TBA on 12/20. Full schedule for her residency below.

In related news, Ikue Mori plays a previously discussed special Body/Head trio set with B/H members Kim Gordon and Bill Nace at the Kim Gordon benefit at Issue Project Room.

Then, from December 25-29 at The Stone, it's the annual John Zorn end of the year improv week, leading up to Thurston Moore's NYE shows. Zorn will be joined by multiple other improvisers throughout the week, including Thurston Moore, Ikue Mori, Sylvie Courvoisier, Erik Friedlander, Okkyung Lee, and many more. Full schedule below.

All mentioned Stone residency schedules, along with Chelsea Light Moving dates, below...

Which night shall I go to? Will Lee show up?

Lee Renaldo will not be there. Thurston and Kim devided the other band members up for the divorce settlement -- Kim gets Lee, Thurston gets Steve and the both share custody of O'Rourke.

This is a song I remember falling in love with when I first heard the Chelsea Light Moving album.And I remember there being such a great impact by the words Thurston chose to say in the song.It's just hearing those words "Be a warrior and love life."It defined my ideal thought of it all.And by the end of it when I think about it I've must of sang this over 30 times just over and over again.And I've heard it hundreds of times as well.So the words that are shown in the end of the video "Love Rules All".Well its honestly the meaning of it all.With that mental note in mind Happy Valentines Day to everyone.I couldn't think of better way than saying it with this video since it fits the mood of it.
