In a day and age where just saying “fuck it” is a huge deciding factor when doing something out of character, April 9th was just officially declared a day of “fuck its” and doing whatever you want in Boston. Paying homage to Bikini Kill and Le Tigre lead, Kathleen Hanna will perform and receive an award on behalf of Riot Grrrl Day.
Not even a Boston native, there really was not point in creating this day other than the fact that it is awesome and they can do it if they want. Boston art councillor Joyce Linehan, also an old friend of Hanna, will present her with the award and relive a moment of their rebel girl days. Rock on.
