You Can’t Blame the Youth

July 2nd, 2009

Thurston Moore met Kim Gordon in 1980. Nearly 30 years—and one marriage later—the iconic group they formed, Sonic Youth, is still going as strong as ever, touring in support of their 16th studio album, the fittingly titled The Eternal, out last month. Tomorrow this dowtown band brings their sprawling, avant-garde sound uptown to the United Palace Theater. Check out Sonic Youth here playing “Teenage Riot” on the BBC music show Later…With Jools Holland and then start your three-day weekend off hot by seeing them play live.
