Thurston Moore & Kim Gordon, Mirror/Dash

Thursday, March 31 – Englert Theatre (Lecture), The Mill (Performances by Mirror/Dash, Thurston Moore Trio, Stare Case)

These are not simply musicians, they are the godparents of underground music. In the past thirty years, in terms of sheer output, both Kim Gordon and husband Thurston Moore are closer to cultural forces of nature.

Starting with Sonic Youth, they branched out musically into so many collaborations and side projects that trying to list those alone would eat up the majority of this page. Beyond the spectrum of the music world, both have made lasting contributions to photography, poetry and painting. Now that their Ecstatic Peace record label has recently added a press, I’m guessing a mastery of fencing and pottery is next.

Both will speak on a panel concerning the creative boom in the early 80’s in NYC that began their musical union. After the talk, they will play two sets: first as Mirror/Dash, which will be just the two of them, an intimate and noisy affair, and, second, as a trio with drummer Chris Corsano in a set that focuses on Moore’s solo output.
