Information about the concert

American singer Kim Gordon will come to Prague. She will perform at MeetFactory on 2 July.

Over 10 years have passed since the release of The Eternal, Sonic Youth's final album, and the subsequent breakup of one of the most distinctive, visceral and formative bands of the past few decades. Kim Gordon reflects on this period, which started in the early 80s when she formed the band along with Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, in her bestselling title Girl in a Band, closing the book (as well as a fundamental chapter of her life) with a statement. "I know, it sounds like I'm someone else entirely now, and I guess I am​."

The break–up of the cult band (preceded by the break–up of Gordon's and Moore's marriage) gave her the space to pursue writing, film and, above all, her visual art endeavours and experimental noise projects Body/Head a Glitterbust. Then in 2019, Gordon's first ever solo album No Home Record comes out of the blue, a vibrant album full of hefty, corrosive beats, noisy textures, dissonant guitars and fragmented lyrics, inspired by no wave, 90s hip hop, footwork, free jazz and contemporary avant-garde electronics.

This year, Kim Gordon follows up with a sophomore record, The Collective, out March 8 on Matador. "On this record, I wanted to express the absolute craziness I feel around me right now," she sums up, taking the record on tour around Europe soon, stopping at MeetFactory on July 2nd.
