Not only do Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth have shows in town this week, but today Other Music sweetened the deal by announcing that Thurston and his current bandmates Steve Shelley (who, of course, was also Sonic Youth’s drummer), Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine’s bassist), and James Sedwards will be signing “scarce recordings and ephemera and copies of their latest record.” They’ll be in-store Thursday, August 6, at 7 p.m., before they head over to Bowery Ballroom.
Tickets ($21) are still available for the show. Admission to the signing is free but Other Music’s store at 15 East 14th Street, near Lafayette, does of course have limited capacity. Get there early to make sure you have “the best day” (name of the new album, duh). And if you ask Thurston and Steve to sign a copy of Dirty, make sure it’s the truly dirty first printing. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, see here for some trivia about the album, which just turned 23.
