used to fly, now i float

hey girlfriiieeennnddd…

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!

    Thank you so much for this post! I live in SLC so reading about this and seeing pictures has been wonderful and inspiring! I hope you don’t mind (and if you do let me know) I used your image of Kathleen Hanna on the blog post that I wrote on my own blog with credit to you and a link to your blog!
    I am so excited to see what comes out of this show! And hopefully more videos… 🙂
