Wanna See Me Disco?


Rising out of the 90s Riot Grrrl scene, Le Tigre, featuring Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill, effortlessly combined feminist lyrics with fill-the-dance-floor beats; years later, their “Deceptacon” is still an indie club night staple. Tonight from 5 to 7 in a free event at St. Francis College’s Maroney Forum for Arts, Culture & Education, band member Johanna Fateman will be appearing to screen Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre on Tour, a film documenting the band’s last tour in 2004, along with the documentary’s director Kerthy Fix. Just like any other tour film, the movie provides lots of concert footage and backstage access, but weighty topics like being feminist and queer in the traditionally patriarchal music industry are also tackled. After the film, Fateman and Fix will stick around to discuss.
