On September 10th, 1989, Lunachicks played at Maxwell’s! This New York City punk rock band originally formed in 1988, when Theo Kogan Gina Volpe, and Sydney "Squid" Silver were students at New York City's Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. The group gained the attention of Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth after seeing the band perform. Through their efforts, the band landed them a deal on Blast First. The group released their debut full length, Babysitter on Acid, in 1990. The band would go on to release another five LPs before disbanding in 2000.
