((Le Tigre)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

One day, Johanna Fateman went to a Bikini Kill show in Portland. She approached the singer, Kathleen Hanna, and gave her a copy of a feminist art zine she started. Hanna loved it, the two became fast friends, and when Hanna moved to NYC started a band with Fateman. And thus, Le Tigre was born -- a bold band that mixes punk, politics and hip hop-inspired drum machine beats.

Hanna is one of the fiercest songwriters you'll find, challenging you to get off your ass -- and not just to dance, but to think big and contribute something to this distorted thing we call Society. This band doesn't back down from anybody and they use their lo-fi eclecticism and catchy melodies to stick it to their enemies. For Le Tigre, the revolution is now.
