(R/N/D'S HALLOWEEN BASH)
First screening outside of London of the much-hyped Le Tigre documentary film, following the band on their This Island tour...
"WHO TOOK THE BOMP? LE TIGRE ON TOUR follows iconic feminist electronic band Le Tigre on their 2004-2005 international tour across four continents and through ten countries. Supported by a community of devoted fans and led by outspoken Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), Le Tigre confronts sexism and homophobia in the music industry while tearing up the stage via performance art poetics, no-holds-barred lyrics, punk rock ethos, and whip-smart wit in this edgy and entertaining documentary. Directed by Kerthy Fix (STRANGE POWERS: STEPHIN MERRITT AND THE MAGNETIC FIELDS), WHO TOOK THE BOMP? LE TIGRE ON TOUR features never before seen live performances, archival interviews, and revealing backstage footage with these trail-blazing artists. "
Film will be followed by live music:
COVERGIRL: a vast, all conquering queer beast. Thought to have eaten members of TRASH KIT, WETDOG and PEEPHOLES. The sounds emanating from hir digestive tract form the missing link between Huggy Bear and TRIBE 8. The next big thing. Listen here:
SKINNY GIRL DIET: Soon to be pre-eminant, teeny-bopper London grrls get a night off from GCSE coursework for a weekend show by the sea. think L7/Ut/Skinned Teen/generalised Slampt-ery
listen to them here....
CANDY PANIC ATTACK: fiercesome queertet chanelling bis, ste mccabe, bratmobile and general sugar-induced headache syndrome. really bloody great outfit and criminally overlooked by the glucose-paranoid teen-c scenesters
Anyway... event will be safely wound up by 2230, giving plenty of time for London-types to catch the last train back home to bed.
