Thurston Moore’s set at the Mohawk was admittedly fun, but it was another case where I couldn’t shake the feeling that there were literally thousands of people who should have been there rather than me. I was having fun and enjoying the show, but a set pairing Thurston Moore and J Mascis with a few of their buddies just seems like something only a superfan should get to enjoy.
Throughout the whole set, I couldn’t help think that Thurston Moore is the generation before mine’s Mick Jagger — and if so, he is completely kicking Mick’s butt. I mean, compare what they do when they want to team up with friends and make music: Thurston rocks out with his buddies on some minute-long punk songs… and Jagger does this. You win this round, Thurston.
