Speaking of no wave legends, Lydia Lunch (Teenage Jesus and the Jerks), who played Knitting Factory earlier this month will be playing with her band Big Sexy Noise in NYC on December 17 at Bowery Electric with "Caught on Tape" duo Thurston Moore/John Moloney. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
For Thurston Moore and John Moloney, the Bowery Electric show is part of a short December northeast tour that the duo will be on, which also includes the previously discussed Brooklyn show at Union Pool on December 11 with Speedy Ortiz and Lone Wolf. All of their dates are listed below.
In other related news, Thurston's ex-wife/Sonic Youth bandmate Kim Gordon, who will guest at the upcoming, sold-out Dinosaur Jr. You're Living All Over Me show at T5, will also be a guest with John Cale (of the Velvet Underground) when he does a tribute to Nico at BAM on January 16 at the Peter Jay Sharp Building. Other guests at that show include Mark Lanegan, Sharon Van Etten, Magnetic Fields, Joan as Police Woman, Peaches, Nick Franglen, and Meshell Ndegocello. Tickets for that show are available.

No Wave legend and all-around cool dude Arto Lindsay will be performing this evening (8/8) in Union Square as part of the free Summer Nights series which is presented by the Arte Institute. Tonight's program, curated by Sao Paulo, Brazil's Instituto de Cultura Contemporeana-ICC, begins at 8 PM and also features videos by artist Eder Santos and director Cao Guimaraes. More info on tonight's show is here.
Arto Lindsay has also been added to the 285 Kent show on Friday (8/10) that was already a really good line-up with Fergus & Geronimo, Peoples Temple, Family Curse, Mannequin Pussy and DJs Habibi.
In other David Byrne news, he's been writing about a recent trip to Brazil on his blog. For instance...
Paulinha throws a party at the house in the evening. There is a room with rotating fans set up for dancing (I do) and 2 Baianas on a patio making acarajé and abara (the steamed rather than deep fried version of the bean cake). A bartender makes caipirinhas and batidas out of fresh maracuja (passion fruit).While he was there he also "picked up a pile of CDs" - "Some contemporary stuff like Lenine, but mostly Afro-Samba bands, Northeastern stuff and some other beautifully recorded folkloric artists..." And that's how he programmed his current Radio David Byrne playlist.
Arto Lindsay is here with his wife. I haven't seen him in years. He's been in Salvador for a number of years, but now he's moving to Rio as there will be more work there. Good to see him.
We leave around two and we hear that, at four AM, just as the party was winding down, Seu Jorge and Beth Carvalho (the singers) show up -- both of them with their entourages. The bartenders rolled their eyes as if to say "now the party will start all over again".
He also wrote an interesting blog post about the battle between Bratz and Barbie (Bratz lost).
