Review: Thurston Moore at Larimer Lounge, 6/29/12


Thurston Moore came on stage joined by the members of Hush Arbors, one of the opening acts, and violin player Samara Lubelski. On the mike, Moore joked, "We just flew in from Boulder," to which some wag in the audience said, "You sure did," eliciting a laugh from Moore, who maintained a healthy sense of humor the rest of the show. After announcing that they were called "Chelsea Light Moving," the band went straight into "Orchard Street," which Moore dedicated to the other opening performer, Anne Waldman, whom he described as one of the most significant voices in American poetry since Moore was a kid.
