Rejoice! Bikini Kill has reunited for select Los Angeles and New York shows this spring! The iconic feminist-punk group Bikini Kill has a Los Angeles concert date scheduled for April 25 at the Hollywood Palladium. Known for their raucous, politically confrontational live shows, Bikini Kill will be performing with three original members: Kathleen Hanna on vocals, Tobi Vail on drums, and Kathi Wilcox on bass. Replacing original Bikini Kill guitarist (Billy Karren) will be Erica Dawn Lyle. In addition to playing a mean guitar, Lyle is a writer and curator who lives in New York City.

Known for being at the forefront of the Riot Grrrl movement in the early ’90s, right now couldn’t be a more perfect time for Bikini Kill to regroup with some reunion shows. These badass women were all about feminism before it became a trend, before it became a corporate marketing tool. You wanna see some real shit, go catch Bikini Kill live in Los Angeles and New York.
