Kim Gordon with White/Light
Event Info: (312) 397-4010 mcachicago.org
Lately Sonic Youth vet Kim Gordon has been working with guitarist Bill Nace under the banner of Body/Head. They’ve just released two strong LPs on which her wordless moans invest resonating guitar harmonics and arcing feedback peals with an air of eldritch ceremony. These records are strong predictors for what she’ll play with White/Light, the local ambient duo of guitarist Matthew Hale Clark and keyboardist-engineer Jeremy Lemos, whose music is similarly free-form. Lemos was Sonic Youth’s soundman for years, so his ability to respond empathetically to Gordon’s improvisations is assured. This performance is part of the MCA's White/Light-curated Face the Strange series.
