ATL Concert Roundup — February 6-12

Thurston Moore

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Thurston Moore
w/ San Agustin
Wednesday, February 8
Goat Farm – 1200 Foster Street NW in Atlanta 30318
Admission $15 / Purchase Tickets

I don’t really pay much attention to anything Thurston Moore does outside of his work with Sonic Youth, so this choice isn’t based on any great love for him as a solo artist. And, really, nobody needs me to vouch for his talents as an artist, collaborator and performer, do they? I mean, that’s all pretty much a given, right? This is Thurston Moore after all, a pioneer with 30+ years of creative exploration and experimentation, of artistic trailblazing and radical music making. Indeed, if I need to remind you of anything let it be of opportunity and place. This is your chance to catch a true underground rock legend in one of Atlanta’s most unique live music settings. The possibilities border on THE MAGICAL. How often can you really say that in life? And for $15 to boot? C’mon, man.
