Chelsea Light Moving, Grass Window

MATTHEW SINGER
9 pm., Friday March 22 | $15.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 

[AFTER THE DAYDREAM] Thurston Moore is moving on—or so he’d like us to think. Two years ago, the Sonic Youth singer-scarecrow separated from his wife and bandmate, Kim Gordon, after close to 30 years of marriage, causing middle-aged record clerks to question everything they once thought to be true, and essentially confirming the end of alt-rock’s most monolithic empire (even though no one’s yet to say it out loud). Now, Moore’s emerged with a new band, Chelsea Light Moving…and it sounds an awful lot like Sonic Youth, with dissonant, roaring guitars twisting around thunderclap rhythms and Moore’s beat-inspired half-singing. Perhaps that’s to be expected, though. After all, Moore practically invented an entirely new musical language three decades ago, and he can’t be expected to stop using it now. And anyway, after that much time together, is moving on ever truly possible?
