Chelsea Light Moving

Thurston Moore‘s new band Chelsea Light Moving weren’t messing around when they said they were “ready to detonate any birthday party, wedding or hullabaloo in any country, planet or stratosphere that doesn’t support right wing extremist NRA sucking bozo-ology.” As you may have noticed, Thurston Moore responded to BrooklynVegan comments, promising that he would in fact bring his band to detonate someone’s birthday party, and this past Sunday (2/24), Chelsea Light Moving went to a basement birthday party in/near Northampton, MA (near where Thurston lives) and commenced detonation. Three videos from it are below.

Chelsea Light Moving are about to kick off their tour and will be destroying the NYC area this weekend with a show at Mawell’s on Saturday (3/2) (tickets) and a free in-store at Other Music on Sunday (3/3). After destroying the rest of the country, they’ll return to NYC for more on April 5 at Bowery Ballroom (tickets). Brace yourselves.
