Chelsea Light Moving, Birds of Avalon 

When: Sun., Oct. 27, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $12-15
Chelsea Light Moving could've called itself Thurston Moore's Playhouse. An outcropping of the crew that toured with the (former?) Sonic Youth co-founder behind his excellent LP Demolished Thoughts, the quartet races between many of Moore's enthusiasms: There are silly punk sprints, spoken-word settings and exercises in verbal ad libs, not to mention the alternating atmospheric ruminations and screeching-and-swiveling noise rock of his famous band. But this group, which features a simpatico mix of American avant veterans, is at its best when it's loud and relentless, doubling down not on abrasion but on force as it roars through instrumental breaks that suggest the Melvins and The Dead C rummaging through the Sonic Youth archives. —Grayson Currin
