May 15. With the seeming demise of Sonic Youth last year, founder Thurston Moore has put together a new noisy outfit, Chelsea Light Moving, which makes its area debut at Club Helsinki with this date. The quartet released its self-titled first album on Matador Records in March, and in addition to Moore on guitar and lead vocals also includes bassist Samara Lubelski, who played violin on Moore's two most recent solo albums, Demolished Thoughts and Trees Outside the Academy, guitarist Keith Wood (Hush Arbors), and drummer John Moloney. The sound? Let's just say fans of Moore's old band likely won't complain. (Golem reappears May 5; the Feelies return May 17.) 8:30pm. $18, $20. Hudson.

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
