Talking to the audience like an old friend (“So, anyway, you guys”), [Kathleen] Hanna addressed a range of topics between songs, from the pressure of constantly being asked to give advice to young feminists (“I never know what to say”) to candidly speaking about how her late-stage Lyme disease (an illness that had kept her from performing for many years) was causing her to forget a lot of her lyrics as she sang (“Every night is different!”). That candor and openness translates to the music as well, and the Julie Ruin’s material is straight up: They aim to tell it like it is–and make you dance. [The House List]

The Julie Ruin — the current project of Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), Kathi Wilcox (Bikini Kill), Kenny Mellman (Kiki & Herb), Carmine Covelli (Bridget Everett & the Tender Moments), and Sara Landaeu (Girls Rock Camp) — continued their victory lap of sold-out shows surrounding the release of their debut album, Run Fast, with another gig at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg last Friday (10/25). Opening the show was DC’s Priests, whose flair for brash punk and feminist lyrics is in line with at least of a few of Kathleen Hanna’s projects. Pictures from Music Hall of Williamsburg are in this post.
