Just got back home from Mexico City after seeing Thurston Moore and Eva Prinz performing at Festival Poesía en Voz Alta, curated by Anne Waldman. Eva Prinz started by reading short poems she said she had just written in the morning, inspired by images she had seen in Mexico City. A poem dedicated to Thurston, about him bringing noise into a context of silence. All in all, she struggled a lot to read/speak in Spanish, and her moments of most clarity occured when she finally recited in English a poem dedicated to Anne Waldman.

Thurston's set consisted of some poems first, and then some music. Despite the recurrence of technical issues (language barriers are powerful things), he approached things in a good mood. Not much euphoria during this part of the show, except by one fan who was constantly yelling to Thurston. After the show was over, I was told that some people got upset and asked for the dude to be removed, and security then escorted him out of there so he missed the highlight of the event: Thurston played "Speak To The Wild", "Cease Fire", and even an encore which consisted of a very beautiful jam.

^^^I'm with SOUP, great pics and review!

Thank you. Some lucky shots on my part, I guess. Below are a few other pics I took. My favourite is the last one. Thurston and Eva Prinz are very active in this festival, today they would present a sound installation at La Casa del Lago. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough spare time to go spend a few days in Mexico City and catch as much of it as possible. Happy about last night's show, though.

It all was professionally filmed by a local TV station (TV UNAM), so I think there is a huge possibilty they will broadcast it at some point.

I should try to upload my recording soon.

Come To Stockholm You Asshole

Just found out TV UNAM/Cultura UNAM en Directo was broadcasting the whole performance in real time, and thankfully it is still available on Youtube (you might wanna start at the 2 hours, 10 minutes mark if you'd only wanna watch Eva Prinz and Thurston Moore's recital--also, the file can be downloaded with the DownloadHelper extension of Firefox if you would wish):
