Address: The Allen Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th St. - 212-721-6500
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.
Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
