Riot Grrrl Retrospective 4 - Grrrl Night at the IPU Convention

Grrrl Night at the International Pop Underground Convention

Oh, how I wish I was in Olympia in August 1991 to attend grrrl night at the IPU convention! Allison Wolfe, Nikki McClure, Sharon Cheslow* talk about the show where Jean Smith (Mecca Normal), Bratmobile, Lois Maffeo, Suture (Sharon Cheslow, Kathleen Hanna and Dug e. Bird), and the Wondertwins (Tim Green and Kathleen Hanna) played. Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) also talks about Heavens to Betsy playing the IPU convention.

*Sharon Cheslow has an AWESOME list on her site of Women in Punk 1975-1980.

  1. I always wished I had gone to IPU but instead went on a road trip to a festival in Georgia which was enjoyable but not as "herstoric" as IPU turned out.

    Enjoying your blog,
