Sonic Youth Closes South American Tour

Sonic Youth closed out their South American tour with an epic performance at the SWU Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil, this week.

It was the last scheduled show for the indie stalwarts for now, as plans beyond the tour are uncertain with the recent separation of Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon.

Moore is staying quite busy, as he kicks off a romp across Europe to close out the year in support of his 2011 album Demolished Thoughts.

In 2012, Moore also has a a string of dates planned back in the United States, beginning with a night at the Arena Theatre @ Wadsworth Museum of Art on Jan. 28.  On two of the U.S. shows, Moore will again share a bill with Kurt Vile.
