Sonic Youth Play Their Daughter's School

So much for the kids putting on a talent show... read about the benefit here

Greenfield Center School is "a progressive alternative for education in the valley," according to Laura Baker, executive director, who came on stage with some students to introduce the headlining band.

"Our mission is not only to educate but to make the world a better place," she said.

Greenfield Center School, which serves 150 children in kindergarten through eighth grade, is hoping to retire its mortgage with this capital campaign.

Locals Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth were simply doing their part as good citizens and good parents. Their daughter is a student at the school.


This was not some stuffy, reserved charitable event. Gordon wore heels and her best rock-star mini-dress and, by the third song, Gordon was sprawled across the floor, dragging his guitar against any flat surface he could find, inducing a feedback frenzy.
