This is a benefit for the Center Against Domestic Violence in Brooklyn, and the theme of the event is Relationship Violence.  Both showgoers and performers will have a chance to engage in activities relating to awareness and activism!

Permanent Wave is a feminist group that knows women are more than groupies and merch girls. We value art from female, trans, and LGBTQ people that challenges the norm. We believe that women should see other women as collaborators and inspirations, not rivals. We want to rip the band-aid off the halted conversations and change the way women are treated.

SOUND WAVE: Feminist music, art, and performance — to be played at maximum volume.

who am i to feel so free

tonight i saw MEN at the knitting factory. it’s a band/collective headed up by JD samson (known best for being a member of le tigre and IMHO, an unstoppable babe, to borrow a phrase from ms. emilyn brodsky). there were boobs and rousing speeches and hurty feet from dancing. here’s what JD looked like.

i took some video too, but that’ll have to wait for tomorrow, at the very least.

of course, i spent some time rabidly internetting to see what JD and the other le tigre ladies have been up to and i discovered two things. 1) there is a le tigre dvd in the works and i have already missed one screening of the work in progress, god dammit and 2) kathleen hanna has an oft-updated blog, on which she posted this fucking amazing x-ray spex video. so early, so far ahead.
