If you’ve been down in the dumps due to The Julie Ruin cancelling their UK tour dates, then this might just be the thing to put a smile back on your face.
As some of you might know, Kathleen Hanna is the star of new film documentary The Punk Singer, directed by Sini Anderson. After getting its UK premiere way back in October, this Friday (May 23) sees its general release across the country courtesy of Dogwoof – hurrah! See here for a screening near you.
And it’s a cracking film too, charting Hanna’s career as riot grrrl provocateuse and feminist icon from childhood right up to the present day – if you have any kind of interest in women in music, then we wholeheartedly recommend it, especially if you’re a fan of the former Bikini Kill and Le Tigre frontwoman. Watch the trailer to The Punk Singer below:
And, because we’re ever so kind, we’d like to whet your appetites with a little competition. We have a ‘Girls To The Front’ T-shirt, badges and a Dogwoof tote bag to give away. All you have to do is answer this question:
What is the name of Le Tigre’s second full-length album?
Answers on a postcard – well, email, titled ‘Punk Singer competition’, with your name and address, to email@example.com, and we’ll pick a winner at random after the competition closes on Saturday (May 24) at 5pm. Good luck!
