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.

ladies and gentlemen, the fabulous stains

girls and guys and everyone in between! ladies and gentlemen, the fabulous stains is streaming on netflix. i’d never seen it before. friends tell me it wasn’t available on dvd till a few years ago, even though it came out in 1982. a seriously amazing punk relic with its faults, but overall… damn. a young diane lane and laura dern and a whole lot of well-timed lady sass and positive messages. “don’t put out.” “i’m perfect.” love, love, love it. if you don’t have netflix, get on that! or con a friend into lending a password.

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!
