Featuring Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls and School of Rock
In 1997, riot grrrl legend Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre) released a solo album under the name Julie Ruin, hoping someday to find a band to play the songs live. She finally assembled her dream team in 2010 as The Julie Ruin, with her ex-Bikini Kill bandmate Kathi Wilcox on bass; Kenny Mellman (half of the legendary punk cabaret act Kiki and Herb) on keys; actor, filmmaker, and musical juggernaut Carmine Covelli on drums; and, Sara Landeau, whom Kathleen met through the Rock Camp for Girls, killing it on guitar. The Julie Ruin brings a strong, tight musical backbone to Hanna’s iconic vocals. Run Fast—their debut album as a band—spans topics from euthanasia to cookies and will be released in September 2013.
