Pioneering riot punk band Bikini Kill will perform at The Backyard Stage at The Amp on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. The Backyard Stage is proudly presented by Intuition Ale Works.
Formed in 1990 and breaking up in 1997, Kathleen Hanna sang, Tobi Vail played drums, Billy Karren (a.k.a. Billy Boredom) played guitar and Kathi Wilcox played bass. Sometimes they switched instruments. They are credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement in the early 90’s via their political lyrics, zines and confrontational live show.
Bikini Kill recorded and released a demo tape, two EP’s, two LP’s and three singles. Their demo tape was self-released, while their first two records came out as a full length CD/Tape. Their singles were posthumously collected on CD.
The band believed that if all girls started bands the world would change. They actively encouraged women and girls to start bands as a means of cultural resistance.
Reuniting in the Spring of 2019, original Bikini Kill members Kathleen, Kathi, and Tobi were joined live by Erica Dawn Lyle.
