Who Took the Bomp?

Watching documentaries is usually not as fan as going to a gig, but given that Le Tigre is currently on hiatus, the upcoming DVD "Who Took the Bomp?: Le Tigre On Tour" by Kerthy Fix (who also directed "Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields") is the closest thing we have to the Le Tigre live experience nowadays. As we've read here, the film documents the band's 2004 world tour. That's a year before we had the opportunity to catch the band live here in Athens in an unforgettably fun and eventful summer night at Bios in June 2005. Go here to read Le Tigre's memories from their Athens visit and check out below a clip of  the band playing their classic "Deceptacon" from the new documentary:

And to round out the Kathleen Hanna experience, here's the video for the killer Bikini Kill tune "Rebel Girl":
