Thurston w/ Chelsea Light Moving earlier this month (more by PSquared Photography)
Thurston Moore is currently out detonating shit on his band Chelsea Light Moving's tour. That tour already hit the NYC area twice and it will return for a show on April 5 at Bowery Ballroom with Prana-Bindu and Marco Fusinato (tickets).
When that tour ends, he'll will head to The Metropolitan Museum of Art on April 15 to perform live in front of a projection of Street, a video of people on the streets of Manhattan by James Nares which features an original 12-string guitar score from Thurston Moore. The show with Thurston on April 15 runs from 6:30 to 9 PM and includes a reception in the Great Hall with complimentary refreshments (beer provided by Harpoon Brewery). After that night, the video will remain on view at The Met until May 27.

The audio guide for the exhibition will include three conversations specifically recorded for MoMA: Richard Hell in conversation with Vito Acconci; James Nares in conversation with Coleen Fitzgibbon; and Diego Cortez in conversation with Fab 5 Freddy.

Other highlights of the exhibition include rock film screenings (The Blank Generation, New York Dolls - All Dolled Up, and others), Bob Gruen's 1976 video "New York Death Cult (Live at Max's Kansas City)" which features footage of the famed New York music venue from that era, early issues of Search & Destroy, Punk Magazine and Interview magazine, and lots of audio stations playing "iconic music from the era".
