Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth fame is hosting a new cable show. Moore's show is "Sonic Cinema" and will air at 10 p.m. Central every Thursday in October. The first one, on Oct. 3, will feature Spoon's video for "Everything Hits at Once."
"Hi-Fi Fridays" will air before "Sonic Cinema," starting at 8 p.m. The third one, Oct. 17, looks especially promising:
The television premiere of Song for Cassavetes kicks off the "Hi-Fi Fridays" part of the evening. This documentary looks at the world of underground rock from the perspective of the musicians, and features concert footage and interviews from Sleater-Kinney, The Make-Up, Unwound, Dub Narcotic Sound System and more.The irony is that the line-up is especially lo-fi. But who's complaining?
