Title

Assimilate My Fist

Description

This flyer says “Assimilate My Fist” and has the classic mirror-of-Venus raised fist wielding a guitar. The guitar reads Tribe8, a rather notorious dyke punk band out of San Francisco in the late 1980s and 1990s.

In the show poster which also featuers this image, the other bands named are Cheesecake and Sunspring. Further text is: Tools Collective presents A benefit for the Asian Task Force on Domestic Violence. Tools Collective and this event were in Boston in the early 1990s. The show itself is at Washburn Hall on Sunday June 13.

This poster has re-emerged thanks to Astria Suparak’s Alien She, a superb curatorial riot grrrl punksplosion. I encountered it on display on the flyer wall as part of that show [http://millergallery.cfa.cmu.edu/exhibitions/alienshe/], at CMU in the Fall of 2013.
