The iconoclastic Thurston Moore has captivated audiences worldwide for nearly 30 years as a singer and guitarist for the pioneering noise-rock band Sonic Youth — and, more recently, as a solo artist. In this performance, Moore turns down the volume for an acoustic set of songs from his introspective new album, Demolished Thoughts. Moore is joined onstage by violinist Samara Lubelski, harpist Mary Lattimore, drummer John Malone and guitarist Keith Wood of Hush Arbors.

Recorded live at The Queen in Wilmington, Del., Moore performs here as part of the 11th annual NON-COMMvention on May 19.
