In 1997, feminist punk icon Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill retreated to her bedroom to create an excellent home-recorded solo album titled Julie Ruin. Six years later, this past June, Hanna's vision for the project expanded into a full-band affair with a fast and fierce punk song "Oh Come On." It's from their forthcoming full length, Run Fast, which comes out on September 3, the same night Hanna's band plays to a sold-out crowd at Bowery Ballroom. Swearin’, one of the tightest punk-spirited pop bands around, opens the show.
