last night i went to the kathleen hanna tribute show at the knitting factory. folks floating around included: jd samson, kim gordon, johanna fateman, thurston moore, amy andronicus, care bears on fire, and more. it was so well-organized and heartfelt and just pure fucking FUN with a socially conscious undercurrent. murray hill made a surprise appearance. kathleen came out and performed with “the julie ruin” and announced she is turning julie ruin into a live band and writing a new record. as i said last night, we really need her around.
kathleen talking about the new riot grrl book, “girls to the front” – which i need to read like, yesterday.
and here’s my favorite julie ruin song!
update! thanks to brendan kennedy, here’s a video of murray hill (hilariously) introducing the julie ruin!
