Thurston Moore, Rat Bastard, and Kenny Millions Play Art Basel House Show (Video)
That is the question we've been asking each other since the Sonic Youth frontman and South Florida native was first spotted at nontraditional art spaces around town during Art Basel Miami Beach week.
He was in Miami to perform in honor of his late friend Kurt Cobain at the multi-disciplinary event, KURT.
On Thursday morning, Moore visited the art studio of Holly Hunt's Beatriz Monteavaro and Gavin Perry with Miami noise legend Rat Bastard. That night, he performed at the Gusman, a theater where his mom first saw Gone with the Wind. Then Friday night, word was Rat might be bringing Moore to the house show of Greg and Eddy Alvarez, two of the three that make up the Jellyfish Brothers.
And the rumors were, as often rumors are, true.

They played at least two long segments of a cacophonous orchestra. The audience antagonized the performers with sporadic pit action, especially Kenny, who bore the brunt of their aggression.
