London Gigs: 25-31 May 2015



The Julie RuinGig Of The Week

This week sees the ultimate gig clash that will leave riot grrrls seething, as legend Kathleen Hanna (fronting new(ish) band The Julie Ruin) rocks into town at the same time as newly reformed Babes In Toyland.

The former narrowly snaps the title of ‘gig of the week’, thanks in part to their jaw dropping, ear splitting record, Run Fast, but also the sheer wait we’ve had to endure to finally see them play over here. The band were forced to pull out of the show – originally scheduled for LAST May – after Hanna was rushed for urgent treatment for the Lyme’s disease she’s battled over the last decade. So all in all, it’s destined to be a blisteringly exciting show.
