Thurston Moore w/ Chelsea Light Moving @ Maxwell's (more by PSquared Photography)
Thurston Moore will be playing a bunch of solo dates this spring, and while they're mostly European gigs, he'll tag Chicago for a special performance in March. Moore will be providing the live score to the James Nares film Street at the Art Institute of Chicago on March 13, which he's done before in NYC. The performance will be taking place in the Rubloff Auditorium, and also features a reading by punk innovator/writer Richard Hell, and the debut collaboration of jazz musicians Joe McPhee and Milford Graves. Tickets for the event are on sale now.
Moore also just recently appeared at UK magazine The Fly's annual Fly Awards, where he joined forces with the Horrors to perform "I Can See You," which is a retooled version of a tune previously called "Elixir Spring." You can check out footage of their performance, alongside Moore's current tour schedule, below...

Thurston Moore, John Moloney, White Mystery, Mavis Staples @ Union Station
Union Station here is effectively a gigantic stone cavern: enormous, hard-surfaced, and blessed with reverb that seems to tiptoe all the way around the room before it slaps you in the back of the head. So a lot of the acts who played at tonight's Station to Station event figured out how to use the mammoth presence of the room to their advantage, beginning with No Age, who traded the high-volume art-punk of their earlier sets on the tour for a hushed, tense, constantly evolving wave of instrumental drone that began with a couple of their associates playing a slap-and-clap game in front of their microphone. [WIRED]Doug Aitken and Levi's brought a rotating cast of visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, and more 'Station to Station' in September. The Chicago stop, which came after NYC and Pittsburgh, featured sets by No Age, Black Monks of Mississippi, Thurston Moore & John Moloney (Caught On Tape), White Mystery, and Mavis Staples. We've got some pictures and videos from the event. They continue below...

The festival lineup has arrived tonight, and includes Pelican/Chord member and solo artist Trevor de Brauw, Thurston Moore, Greg Fox's Guardian Alien, MV & EE, Running, Julian Lynch, and many more acts. Festival passes are on sale now, and come with MP3s from Windbreaker, Ryley Walker, and more. Of course, you could take your chances and pay per-day at the door but we don't recommend it (and there might not be room for walk-ups).

DOWNLOAD: Thurston Moore - "Circulation" (MP3)
Thurston Moore is prepping his forthcoming solo effort Demolished Thoughts, to be released on May 24th via Matador Records. The LP was produced by none other than Beck Hansen, and was recorded in both Los Angeles, CA and Northampton, MA.
"Circulation is about menstrual cycles, menstruation blood, and the year 2012 when the Goddess of Destruction, the Goddess of Creation and the Goddess of Nurturing all come together and rise as Isis to bring the Earth to a new Matriarchy. We'll of course be in bed, drinking wine, smoking cigarettes and playing scratchy jazz records on a turntable on the nightstand."
Aside from some recently announced dates with Kurt Vile & The Violators, he'll make an appearance on Friday of the 2011 Pitchfork Festival.
At the top of this post you can download the Demolished Thoughts track "Circulation."
