Kathleen Hanna sang, Tobi Vail played drums, Billy Karren (a.k.a. Billy Boredom) played guitar and Kathi Wilcox played bass. Sometimes they switched instruments. Bikini Kill is credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement in the early '90s via their political lyrics, zines and confrontational live show. The band started touring in June 1991. In addition to touring the US several times, they also toured Europe, Australia and Japan. Bikini Kill recorded and released a demo tape, two EPs, two LPs and three singles. Their demo tape was self-released, while their first two records came out as a full-length CD/tape and their singles were posthumously collected on CD. Bikini Kill believed that if all girls started bands the world would change. They actively encouraged women and girls to start bands as a means of cultural resistance. Bikini Kill was inspired by seeing Babes in Toyland play live and attempted to incite female participation and build feminist community via the punk scene. They used touring as a way to create an underground network between girls who played music, put on shows and made fanzines. This independent media making and informal network created a forum for multiple female voices to be heard. Bikini Kill reunited in the spring of 2019 with original members Kathleen, Kathi and Tobi who are joined live by Erica Dawn Lyle. So far, they have sold out multiple shows in Los Angeles, New York City and London as well as headlining Riot Fest in Chicago.Website:http://bikinikill.com/ Upcoming Events Similar Events Upcoming Events at Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Sabertooth Music Fest Friday, June 5 Crystal Ballroom * CANCELED * EDEN Saturday, June 6 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Tanya Tucker Wednesday, June 10 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Thao & The Get Down Stay Down Saturday, June 20 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Lennon Stella Saturday, June 27 Crystal Ballroom *POSTPONED TO March 20, 2021* Sunday, June 28 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Jeremy Zucker Wednesday, July 8 Crystal Ballroom * CANCELED * Emancipator Ensemble Saturday, July 18 Crystal Ballroom Similar Events at Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Sabertooth Music Fest Friday, June 5 Crystal Ballroom * CANCELED * EDEN Saturday, June 6 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Tanya Tucker Wednesday, June 10 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Thao & The Get Down Stay Down Saturday, June 20 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Lennon Stella Saturday, June 27 Crystal Ballroom *POSTPONED TO March 20, 2021* Sunday, June 28 Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Jeremy Zucker Wednesday, July 8 Crystal Ballroom * CANCELED * Emancipator Ensemble Saturday, July 18 Crystal Ballroom McMenamins, Portland Mercury, XRAY & do503 present * POSTPONED * Sabertooth Music Fest Postponed Friday, June 5 5:30 pm doors, 6:30 pm show 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom Canceled * CANCELED * EDEN Canceled Saturday, June 6 6:30 pm doors, 8 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom * POSTPONED * Tanya Tucker Wednesday, June 10 6:30 pm doors, 8 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Monqui Presents * POSTPONED * Thao & The Get Down Stay Down Saturday, June 20 7 pm doors, 8:30 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Live Nation presents * POSTPONED * Lennon Stella Saturday, June 27 6:30 pm doors, 8 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Postponed *POSTPONED TO March 20, 2021* Sunday, June 28 7 pm doors, 8:30 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Mike Thrasher Presents * POSTPONED * Jeremy Zucker Wednesday, July 8 6:30 pm doors, 8 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Showbox presents * CANCELED * Emancipator Ensemble Canceled Saturday, July 18 6:30 pm doors, 8 pm show 18 and over only at Crystal Ballroom A Message from Crystal Ballroom Friday, July 31 All day All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom *POSTPONED TO September 24, 2021* Postponed Monday, August 3 7 pm Meet & Greet doors, 8 pm regular doors, 9 pm show 21 and over at Crystal Ballroom Postponed Dance Gavin Dance Wednesday, August 5 5:30 pm doors, 6:30 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom True West Presents Oh Sees Friday, September 4 7:30 pm doors, 9 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Elizabeth Mollo Productions Presents: Fade to Light: A Multidimensional Fashion Event Wednesday, September 16 6:30 pm doors, 8 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom True West presents Ty Segall and The Freedom Band Friday, September 18 7:30 pm doors, 9 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Canceled Canceled: The Revelators Tourfeaturing Josh Garrelsand John Mark McMillan Canceled Saturday, September 19 6:30 pm doors, 8 pm show All ages welcome at Crystal Ballroom Living Prism presents Down the Rabbit Hole 2020: Outlandish!
