Le Tigre: On Tour

Like a feminist Bat-Signal, Le Tigre is sending out this documentary of its last world concert tour in 2004 as a way of calling on women to continue the band’s queer-punk mission. On Tour starts slow, with loose introductions to performers Johanna Fateman, JD Samson and legendary riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna, then builds to a high-energy, anthemic finish. Whether performing in matching costumes, goofing off at the gym, or sneaking reproductive politics into radio interviews, the band with the roller-skate jams shows that messy is beautiful, and feminism never goes out of style. Keep on living, ladies.
