Karin Fjellman writesTonight! CHIRP presents a screening of “Who Took The Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour”

Please join CHIRP for a free screening of “Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour!”

Tonight at 8pm, the Bottom Lounge will host this exciting event — DJs Pippi Redstocking and Lucy Flawless will spin before and after the screening, and local feminist organizations Girls Rock! Chicago, Chicago Women’s Health Center and Planned Parenthood Illinois will be there with information on hand. The film will be screened at 8:45pm.

WHO TOOK THE BOMP? LE TIGRE ON TOUR follows iconic feminist electronic band Le Tigre on their 2004-2005 international tour across four continents and through ten countries. Supported by a community of devoted fans and led by outspoken Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), Le Tigre confronts sexism and homophobia in the music industry while tearing up the stage via performance art poetics, no-holds-barred lyrics, punk rock ethos, and whip-smart wit in this edgy and entertaining documentary. Directed by Kerthy Fix (STRANGE POWERS: STEPHIN MERRITT AND THE MAGNETIC FIELDS), WHO TOOK THE BOMP? LE TIGRE ON TOUR features never before seen live performances, archival interviews, and revealing backstage footage with these trail-blazing artists.
