Win Tickets to The Julie Ruin at The Loving Touch!

In 1997 Kathleen Hanna took a break from Bikini Kill and put out a solo album called Julie Ruin. She attempted to form a live group to play those songs and instead ended up forming Le Tigre. That first Le Tigre album is one of my all time favorite records and Kathleen is a musical genius as far as I'm concerned. Years later, in 2010 she reopened her musical vault and finally put together a group with Kathi Wilcox, Kenny Mellman, Carmine Covell and Sara Landeau appropriately called The Julie Ruin. They played their first show in Brooklyn, New York in 2010 and their first album as a band was released in 2013, entitled Run Fast

The Julie Ruin are coming to Detroit to play The Loving Touch on April 8th alongside Screaming Females. Hearing that Kathleen Hanna is in the band is enough to get me to the show, but in case you need a little more of a push, we are giving away one set of tickets. To enter to win, please email your full name to We will email one lucky person a few days before the show and their name will be on the guest list plus one. 

Check out The Julie Ruin's video for “Oh Come On” and come out next Tuesday to see them live.
