My review of No Wave, the new history by Byron Coley and Thurston Moore, is out. Moore is playing bass in the reunited Teenage Jesus and the Jerks tonight at the Knitting Factory, though of course the main attraction is Lydia Lunch, flying in from her current home of Barcelona for the gig.
If you have any interest whatsoever in radical hostility, there's no excuse for missing that show. I'm going to the 9pm set myself; see you there. (Of course as with all shows at the Knit, a trip to the Pakistani Tea House is mandatory beforehand. Forget about the actual main dishes, good as they are: That place has my favorite rice pudding in New York—and sad to say, I've tried a lot.)
