Remember when it was impossible to go a week without catching Thurston Moore at somewhere like Tonic or the Cooler? That changed the moment Sonic Youth and Thurstkim (no?) broke up and he moved to London. Now Kim Gordon is the one who’s all over town (with Lee Ranaldo making the occasional appearance, as he did this past weekend at Trans-Pecos) while Thurston is off touring Europe. But good news today: The Thurston Moore Band is back in the States this summer, per the tour dates below. Tickets for the Bowery Ballroom show, on August 6, go on sale Friday, May 1, at noon.
