MAKE SOME NOISE
Fusing glamour and outsider art like nobody’s business, longtime Sonic Youth duchess of drone Kim Gordon is both honoree and headliner at a two-night benefit marking ISSUE Project Room’s 10th anniversary. After entertaining cocktail-sipping VIPs with drummer Tim Barnes, and a solo set by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis, the actor, producer, director, and fashion designer returns with fellow guitarist Bill Nace and powerful percussionist Ikue Mori for a Body/Head set. If Sonic Youth is the rhizome, Body/Head is the perhaps intentionally heartless, but otherwise powerful, reaction to a musical scene that still has issues with wild women. In which case Gordon’s debut the following night with I.U.D. — her noise trio with Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance) and Sadie Laska (Growing) — should settle a score or two.
