Description: Sonic Youth, the band that Thurston Moore co-founded in 1981 and that he performs in still, is one of the celebrated progenitors of noise rock, a brand of protopunk rock also known as alternative rock. Generally regarded as a guitarist in the same league as Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, albeit far more experimental, Thurston Moore's guitar and vocals have fueled Sonic Youth's sound for 30 years. But in The Allen Room he'll present another side, his acoustic, folk music side, also utilizing violin and concert harp. It's Moore with less - and equally worth a listen.
