Legendary feminist Punk band Bikini Kill will kick off their expansive international tour next month. In 2019, they played their first full shows since 1997, performing to sold out crowds in select US cities and London. Their 2020 international tour was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans can currently purchase tickets to the rescheduled tour and a handful of new shows. These shows see the band performing with their original line-up of Kathleen Hanna on vocals, Tobi Vail on drums, and Kathi Wilcox on bass, along with guitarist Erica Dawn Lyle.

The tour includes a 2-night sold out return to Olympia, WA, where they first started, to benefit Interfaith Works Nightly Shelter, a local non-profit acting as the only shelter/homeless services program that explicitly prioritizes women and LGBT single adults in the Olympia community.
