Since 2001, Northampton buds Thurston Moore and Byron Coley have spewed handmade poetry ‘zines, noise tapes, scholarly research, and enthusiastic record reviews. This season finds them at White Columns, where issue #10 of their Ecstatic Peace Poetry Journal takes the form of a gallery show presenting their magnificent collection of radical East Village poetry rags, beginning with the Fugs’ Ed Sanders’ Fuck You and delving into all manners of joyously agitated NSFWness. Moore’s semi-weekly improv sets have included sessions with drummer Chris Corsano and Sonic Youth comrade Kim Gordon. This week adds a reading by Richard Hell, the punk luminary and novelist.
