Art Basel Miami Beach

Thurston Moore, Rat Bastard, and Kenny Millions Play Art Basel House Show (Video)

"Where's Thurston Moore?"



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.
