It’s not like I didn’t love “Gossip Girl” before, but I’m now officially IN LOVE with this show.
Entertainment Weekly reports that one of my favorite bands from the ’80s and early ’90s – SONIC YOUTH – will perform on the upcoming season’s fifth episode. (Whee! Kim Gordon is a rock goddess…)
Turns out that showrunner Stephanie Savage is a huge fan of the band – and vice versa. I can’t really picture Kim and Thurston Moore hanging out watching “GG” with their 15-year-old daughter, but I guess stars really are just like us!
Anyway, a match made in heaven was made. The band will take part in a “very special event” involving Rufus and Lily.
And what will they be singing? An acoustic version of “Starpower” from their 1986 album, “EVOL.” (I’m a bit more partial to 1990’s “Kool Thing,” but let’s not be picky!)
Never heard the song, and want a sneak peek? Go here to check out a (rather blurry) video of the band doing that very song when it first came out, 23 YEARS AGO!
