Oh Le Tigre, how I love thee. I remember being 17 and thinking I was the epitome of cool for driving around with Feminist Sweepstakes blaring from my speakers, and how chuffed I was to get one of their band T shirts for my 18th birthday. It’s cool to admit to that, right?
I do love a bit of feminist electroclash, but as the group have been relatively inactive since 2006, I’ve not had much of a chance to publicly revel in my fan-grrrl adoration for the feisty threesome.
Massive kudos then to the Ladyfest Ten crew (in collaboration with Unskinny Bop), who have organised a Le Tigre themed benefit, More Crackers Please! to take place on August 29th. The venue will be the ultra cute Bethnal Green library, and there’s a whole 12 hours of riot grrl fun to be had, from 2pm to 2am the following day. An outline of the festivities can be found on the Facebook event page here. Stalls! Zines! Karaoke! I better make sure my band t shirt is ironed and ready for the occasion :)
Tickets for the event go on sale on Monday 16th August, and can be purchased from the We Got Tickets website for a mere £9. All proceeds from ticket sales will be going to Ladyfest Ten, another essential date for the feminist calender! Hopefully we’ll be seeing y’all there.By: Yasmin Eshref, 13.08.2010 | Comments (1)
