SONIC Youth frontman Thurston Moore will play a gig in Bourke’s Bar in Limerick in January.
Securing the services of the American musician is a major coup for the Catherine Street venue, and booker John Hennessy, who previously occupied the same role in Whelan’s in Dublin.
Moore will play in the venue on January 16, along with John Moloney of Sunburned Hand of the Man - and tickets will be like gold dust, such is the intimate nature of the venue.
Information on tickets and capacity is yet to be released, but we will bring it to you when we have more news in the coming days and weeks.
Moore, the singer, songwriter and guitarist of Sonic Youth - the alt-rock band from New York, who have a legion of hardcore fans worldwide and are a lot of musicians’ favourite bands.
In recent times Moore has been performing with new band Chelsea Light Moving.
