The most spot-on comment I heard about the sold-out Julie Ruin show at Black Cat on Saturday was, “It was just fun. It was dance music with a message.” The Julie Ruin’s creator and lead singer, Kathleen Hanna, still kicks ass and takes names on stage (with killer dance moves) much like she did in Bikini Kill. Meanwhile, Julie Ruin’s new record Run Fast is an uptempo thrill of a listen.
