After playing their first proper NYC show in over 20 years (pics, recap) (following a brief surprise reunion in 2017 at The Kitchen) at Brooklyn Steel on Friday (5/30), Bikini Kill played NYC again at Terminal 5 on Saturday (6/1). The band's 26-song set (including two encores) had a similar selection of songs to the first show, but in a different order, including such classics as "This Is Not A Test," "Don't Need You," "Rebel Girl," "Double Dare Ya," "Suck My Left One," "For Tammy Rae," and more. Bikini Kill sounded awesome, maybe even better than they did back in the day, and the crowd was mobbed with people who came to party. People were dancing everywhere -- from the front to the back and in the aisles upstairs -- and the whole thing was a madhouse in the best way.

Alt-rapper Sammus opened with a very emotional set that had her in tears at one point near the end, and Kathleen Hanna praised her set when she first came on stage, saying you fucked up if you missed Sammus. Pictures of both Bikini Kill and Sammus are in the gallery above. Bikini Kill setlist and videos below.

The band has two more NYC shows: Tuesday (6/4) and Wednesday (6/5) at Kings Theatre. They also play Chicago's Riot Fest.
