Bikini Kill: George Bush Is No Hero
International Pop Underground Convention
If you have read Sara Marcus’s book “Girls To The Front” she refers to Bikini Kill throughout and this show specifically. One of 15 acts to play that night, Bikini Kill from all accounts, wowed the huge crowd. I saw them a few years after this show at a club in Minnesota. I got yelled at by Kathleen for standing too close to the front which didn’t help endear me to a band I already wasn’t particularly fond of. Though I’ve sat through much worse shows, the fascination with Bikini Kill is something that I never could “get”. I guess different strokes…
This is a nice black and white clip of the band playing the only (I’m guessing) song that Billy sings.
