I certainly don’t have anything pithy to say about Thurston Moore of the now legendary Sonic Youth or his new band Chelsea Light Moving that hasn’t already been said.
So I’ll just add that booking Moore and company is a major coup for the Savannah Stopover, which is about to celebrate only its third festival.
Check out these three live videos posted just last week by Matador Records and reposted by Pitchfork:
Chelsea Light Moving plays on Thursday, March 7 at 10:30 p.m. in the Knights of Columbus Hall on Liberty Street, with Merchandise opening. Click here for the full Savannah Stopover schedule. Click here for the Stopover page devoted to Chelsea Light Moving.
In the days leading up to the Stopover, I’m posting quite a number of short previews like this. So far I’ve previewed Stop Light Observations, Mac DeMarco, Little Tybee, Eric Britt, Heyrocco, Roadkill Ghost Choir, this mountain, Triathalon, Field Report and of Montreal.
