Hell Yes. Oscilloscope Laboratories announced that it will release the highly anticipated film Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour on DVD June 7.
The film, which is set to premiere at this year’s SXSW Film and Music Festival, follows electronic feminist icons Le Tigre on the This Island tour across four continents and ten countries. Supported by a community of devoted fans and led by outspoken Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), Le Tigre confronts sexism and homophobia in the music industry while tearing up the stage via performance art poetics, no-holds-barred lyrics, punk rock ethos, and whip-smart wit in this edgy and entertaining documentary.
Directed by Kerthy Fix (Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields) Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour features never before seen live performances, archival interviews, and revealing backstage footage with these trail-blazing artists.
Check out the film at SXSW and at MoMA.
