The sonic skronk and squall that informs the downbeat post-pop expressionism of artist Christopher Wool, currently the subject of a career retrospective at the Guggenheim, is reflected in Nation Time, an evening of music and performance 
co-curated by the artist himself. His selections reflect a happy symmetry: They include punk godfather Richard Hell, who reads here, and Arto Lindsay, whose trio DNA virtually defined the No Age sound with brief blasts of head- or room-clearing noise. Even better, the free-jazz spirit embodied by Wool’s snarliest graffiti-inspired paintings is represented by legendary 
improviser Joe McPhee and the Scandinavian trio known as The Thing, whose new Boot! opens with a scalding reinterpretation of Coltrane’s sanctified “India.”
