Last year, legendary feminist punk band Bikini Kill regrouped for their first full shows since 1997 with performances across the globe in NYC, LA, London and Riot Fest. After quickly selling out an expansive list of international tour dates, the band is thrilled to announce additional east coast dates including stops in Nashville, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami + more. Feminist rapper Princess Nokia has been announced as support October 21 at Red Rocks and LA punk legend Alice Bag has also been announced on select dates. Tickets are on sales now.

In initial interviews since Bikini Kill’s reunion, band members Kathleen Hanna and Tobi Vail respectively sat down with Pitchfork and The Olympian, explaining how the band reunited, while touching on what their music meant before and how it remains relevant in today’s cultural moment.

The run kicks off with the band back in Olympia, WA, where they first started, for two benefit concerts for Interfaith Works Nightly Shelter, a local non-profit acting as the only shelter/homeless services program that explicitly prioritizes women and LGBT single adults in the Olympia community.  

These shows see the band performing with their iconic line-up of Kathleen Hanna on vocals, Tobi Vail on drums, and Kathi Wilcox on bass — along with guitarist Erica Dawn Lyle. Hailed by The New York TimesRolling StonePitchfork and The Los Angeles Times, the reunion has sparked critical discussion on the band’s legacy and influence on culture and music today with Entertainment WeeklyNYLONThe New York Times
