Alien She is a testament to the power of young people motivated to spreading a message. – KECT

Musicians rooted in punk feminism will perform a selection of songs expanding the notion of Riot Grrrl “hits,” ranging from Canadian indie pop Cub to S.F. queercore Tribe 8. The audience can sing along to karaoke style videos made for this occasion by Dana Bishop-Root & Ginger Brooks Takahashi of General Sisters and Deirdre Logue & Allyson Mitchell of FAG Feminist Art Gallery. Live Riot pulls into focus the politics that arise when revisiting the lyrics and spirit of these fearless and danceable songs. Following the show Ginger will DJ the night away as you dance it out. Singing, we must rage!

Live Riot is produced in conjunction with the Alien She exhibition on view at Pacific Northwest College of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Craft. Curated by Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss, it is the first exhibition to examine the lasting impact of Riot Grrrl on artists and cultural producers working today.
