Gig Information


With support from FAKE PURR

Banished Music, Strange News, and Solid Entertainment are proud to present, for the first time in New Zealand, iconic feminist punk pioneers Bikini Kill.

Riot grrrl trailblazers Bikini Kill founding members Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail and Kathi Wilcox are set to bring the riot to one very special all ages show at the Powerstation, Wednesday 15th March, 2023.

When Bikini Kill formed in Olympia, Washington back in 1990, they quickly earned a reputation for one of the fiercest bands around, with their unapologetically political lyricism, DIY ethos, and high energy, often confrontational live shows.

Credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement, the band created a legacy that is still resonating across the planet, with a commitment to helping empower and inspire the feminist voice through music.

Since reuniting in 2019 the band are selling out shows wherever they go, a testament to their unquestionable impact and cultural importance in musical history. Their live shows have lost none of what made them so brilliantly punk in the first place:

“The second coming of Bikini Kill is a gloriously urgent call to arms from a band that have lost none of their visceral power. Bikini Kill are well rehearsed, and 20 years more comfortable with their instruments than they were in their 90s heyday.” - The Guardian

Support for the show comes in the form of legendary Auckland punk group Fake Purr who banded together in the mid-nineties to bring their own rebellious brand of riot grrl music to Auckland audiences.

Formed by Brenda, Stephanie, Brigid, and Stella - all legends of the local scene - the band broke up in 2005 but have reunited for one very special night only, to join Bikini Kill at the Powerstation.
We are beyond excited to be hosting Bikini Kill this March as part of their ongoing world tour, with original members Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, and Kathi Wilcox joined by guitarist Sara Landeau (The Julie Ruin).
