Chelsea Light Moving

Why: Some Sonic Youth fans are still reeling from Thurston Moore’s split from Kim Gordon. But maybe the breakup spurred Moore to kick out the jams with the vengeance of ’80s SY milestones like Sister and EVOL in his latest project, Chelsea Light Moving. The new eponymous album erases the blahs left by SY’s last few albums with songs that blowtorch rock into gnarly shapes. At 54, Moore has rejuvenated his radical vocabulary of odd guitar tunings and rediscovered the exhilarations of high-velocity songwriting. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St,, 8 pm, $15, 21+)
