New York City alt-rock icon Kim Gordon, who co-founded Sonic Youth in the vibrant downtown scene in 1981, is headed to Lena Dunham's version of NYC in 2014. 

In an interview with Slate, the bassist-guitarist revealed she's making an appearance on Season 3 of Dunham's HBO series Girls. But that's the extent of what we know. All Gordon would say is that she's "on an episode next season." Which isn't much to go on.

But we do know this: Gordon has a strong affinity for appearing on TV shows with the word "girl" in the title. In 2009, Sonic Youth popped up on Gossip Girl, performing (and officiating!) at a wedding. Also, her upcoming memoir is titled Girl In a Band. In short, Kim Gordon is definitely a female.

As for her musical career, Gordon's new project Body/Head releases its debut album, Coming Apart, next Tuesday. Body/Head has been Gordon's main focus since Sonic Youth called it quits in 2011 because of her bandmate/husband Thurston Moore's ongoing affair with a younger woman. Despite the divorce, Moore and Gordon recorded an album with Yoko Ono in 2012, but this will be her first album without Moore following SY's dissolution.
