Today is the 43rd birthday of zinester, third wave feminist, riot grrrl and noisemaker Kathleen Hanna. Check out Bikini Kill, Le Tigre and Julie Ruin music videos below. Share your fave Kathleen Hanna tunes in the comments. ¡Feliz cumpleaños, Kathleen Hanna!
The nihilistic party of pop and subpop culture rages on. Someone knocked over the lamp, and it sure is dark in here. The embers of lit cigarettes wink in the black. One such ember, Le Tigre, wants to make sure you don't forget. About them. About feminism. About gender-fucking. You know, but with, like, beats and shit.
Made of a cast of characters that includes Le Tigre members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman, Men is a sexed-up, gender-bending Brooklyn art/performance collective that specializes in disco trash and crazily costumed stage shows. See the eccentric, electronic action live at the Launchpad tonight. The 21-and-over show is $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Locals Ya Ya Boom and Shoulder Voices get the party started.
