Le Tigre


ABOUT

“Who Took the Bomp” is a concert film that follows our band across 4 continents and 10 countries. It will be released as a DVD by Oscilloscope Laboratories on June 7th, 2011. For press inquiries please contact Girlie Action.

The film edits together 20 shows from our 2004-2005 world tour along with backstage footage and interviews. The movie highlights our motivations and the many ways we attempted to use humor when confronted with the inherent sexism and homophobia of the rock world.

It is 69 minutes long and includes bonus material. It was shot by Carmine Covelli and directed by Kerthy Fix.

Hello!

I am the Visual Arts Events Coordinator for hercircleezine.com, an online portal of women’s creative arts and activism, featuring socially engaged works of literature and art by women from around the globe.

One of the highlights of our website is Studio HCE, an online gallery dedicated exclusively to women’s art. Currently, we are organizing a series of virtual events and exhibitions for this space in honor of International Women’s Day. One of the events we have going on is a talk from artsit Kirsten McCrea who has created a project based all about your song Hot Topic.

“‘Hot Topic’ is a series of 60 paintings that portray each person mentioned in the Le Tigre song of the same name. The song is a tribute to feminist heroes of all stripes: artists, activists, writers, musicians and others. Many of the people in the song have strongly influenced my own development as an artist and activist but are relatively unknown outside of certain subcultures. In a world that celebrates Britney Spears but forgets the names of suffragists, I wanted to find a way to solidify the memory of the underground superstars whose creativity and ideas have made such a difference to feminists of my generation” – Kirsten McCrea, 2008.

I was hopeful that we might be able to make mention of it on your site?

Many thanks, Rebekah Jones

Is it only gonna be accessible to those in the US? That would suck. The rest of the world needs Le Tigre DVDs, too.
