The Thurston Moore Group: LIVE at St George’s Hall
Thurston Moore is best known for being the co-founder of legendary alternative rock group Sonic Youth. His use of unusual tunings and distorted sounds have had an impact on experimental and post-punk music the world over, and he was ranked by Rolling Stone amongst the greatest guitarists of all time.
Moore has collaborated with writers, musicians and artists as varied as Yoko Ono, William Burroughs, Merce Cunningham and Sean Lennon. Himself a poet, he is also an avid reader and a publisher – as well as a fan of The Liverpool Poets.
As The Thurston Moore Group (including My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Goodge, and fiery guitarist James Sedwards ) embarks on a world tour with their latest album, RocknRoll Consciousness, they stop off in Liverpool to perform their musical response to The Mersey Sound.
The Thurston Moore Group will be supported by Liverpool psychedelic noise outfit Mugstar. Their influences run from early Floyd & Hawkwind, through Mogwai, Dinosaur Jr to Steve Reich & La Monte Young. Mugstar are currently signed to Rock Action Records and this will be their first home town show in over a year.
This performance will take place in Concert Room, St George’s Hall at 8.00pm (Doors Open – 6.30pm).
Tickets: £14.00 (plus booking fee).
Event Date: Tuesday 30th May – Tuesday 30th May 2017
