As Thurston Moore told Rolling Stone last month, Sonic Youth paid a visit to the Gossip Girl set in September to film a cameo for an upcoming episode. The clip aired last night, finally answering the question, “How is Gossip Girl going to work Sonic Youth into a plot line?”

The premise: the downtown legends portrayed a wedding band performing at the union of the show’s star-crossed adult lovers, Rufus and Lily. When the episode aired last night, viewers found out Rufus had once opened for Sonic Youth when his fictional band was in its rock star heyday, making it fitting that Sonic Youth played their Eighties classic “Star Power.” Kim Gordon also scored herself a bit of dialogue as the Internet-certified official presiding over the episode’s nuptials — check out her scene and the band’s performance in the clip above.
