Bikini Kill Is Going On Tour For The First Time Since 1997

by Allie Lawrence

Bikini Kill is back, baby! Pitchfork reported that the riot grrrl band from Olympia, Washington has announced a reunion tour for 2019. Singer/songwriter Kathleen Hanna, bassist Kathi Wilcox, and drummer Tobi Vail will be joined by a new guitarist, Erica Dawn Lyle, for three shows: one show in L.A. and two shows in New York.

Bikini Kill disbanded in 1997, reuniting briefly in 2017 to play one song at an event celebrating the Raincoats, a ’70s British punk band. Bikini Kill’s discography wasn’t added to streaming services until last year.
