I love punk music. I love Bikini Kill. I love Le Tigre. And I also love Kathleen Hanna.
2013's The Punk Singer is a documentary about Kathleen Hanna and her career. As someone who has listened to most, if not all, of Hanna's projects and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that it was available on Netflix.
If you're into riot grrl, punk music, the 90s, or if the idea of people doing things instead of simply talking about things, then you should check it out. Watch the trailer below and lemme know what you think!
@beywatch, They totally do, if I remember correctly the last third of the movie is dedicated to her having Lyme Disease. It's really, really, really, good.
@shannonl5 @beywatch You guys HAVE to read Girls to The Front by Sara Marcus if you haven't already! It's basically an oral history of the Riot Grrl movement
I STILL NEED TO SEE THIS. I heard that they spend a lot of time talking about how she battled Lyme Disease too, which is INSANE. I feel like she barely dropped off my radar between the last Le Tigre album and the Julie Ruin, but apparently a lot went on during those years in between. (I'm a huge riotgrrl fan btw. All of my embarrassing old blogging usernames were Bratmobile song titles.)
I'll have to look for it on the Amazon.
@shannon15 @paulisaverage I'm going to have to watch this one too. Kathleen Hanna is badass.
