Three pillars of the noise and avant-jazz scene collide! Thurston Moore, singer/songwriter/guitarist for Sonic Youth, teams up with free-noise guitarist Bill Nace and avant-jazz saxophonist Joe McPhee for an evening of mind bending cacophony.

Thurston Moore, often referenced for his work with popular alternative rock band Sonic Youth, brings to the table a long and rich history, frequently working on improvised, noise based instrumental solo or duo projects. He has worked with numerous highly acclaimed artists such as William Hooker, Loren Mazzacane Connors, Chris Corsano, Nels Cline, Daniel Carter, DJ Spooky, Daniel Castro and Lydia Lunch among others. Moore has also worked in several collaborations with intense and distinctive guitarist Bill Nace, May 31 at Roulette being no exception. Nace, one of the premiere avant-garde guitarists around, is known to push the boundaries of distortion, creating his own unique palette of sound. Textured, precise and mind-bending, Nace is a complimentary bedfellow for Moore.

In an interesting juxtaposition this trio is rounded out by award winning reeds player Joe Mcphee. A thoughtful conceptualist, deeply emotional composer and improviser, Mcphee has long championed the creative jazz and new music scene. Appearing on over 70 recordings, Mcphee has collaborated with Peter Brotzmann, Ken Vandermark, Dominic Duval, Evan Parker, Jay Rosen, Jeb Bishop and Mat Maneri among others. He has earned such accolades as "... his magical take on avant-garde sax remains one of the wonders of the scene. He still has one of the most beautiful tones on the planet, even when he's reaching for jazz's outer limits." - Time Out New York, and continues to set the globe on fire with frequent appearances at major festivals, concert halls and New York City venues.
