"MANIC" WEDNESDAY: IFC Films celebrated the New York City premiere of its upcoming "Manic" with a screening at Loews Village 7 followed by a party at CB's Gallery on Bowery. The powerful new film, produced by the company's former Next Wave Films division, features music by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. The rocker, with his wife and bandmate Kim Gordon in the audience, performed a terrific set of music that eventually won over the loudly chatting massses near the front of the club. After the set, Moore chatted with star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, co-star & co-writer Michael Bacall and director Jordan Melamed. Others in attendance included actress Sara Rivas, Madeleine Gavin, the film's editor (and Melamed's wife), and Jonathan Sehring and crew from IFC. The film opens today.

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
