Le Tigre Get Help From Activist Superhero Gloria Steinem





Tomorrow night in Pittsburgh Le Tigre fans will be treated to a special surprise, as Gloria Steinem will be introducing the band. The veteran activist will also take some time to discuss some important issues revolving around the political process, especially the importance of voting in the forthcoming election. Steinem is actually on her own tour of swing states in the days leading up to the election, actively campaigning for Kerry. Her pairing with Le Tigre is not Steinem's first foray into the wild world of rock though. She recently appeared at a Michael Moore rally in Ohio (he's sort of a rock star) and also dropped in on an Anti-Flag show in Tampa, FL, not too long ago.


"The ability of music groups of all kinds to go directly to the public without passing through the media is crucial," she told Billboard. "People know and trust musicians based on their records and their lyrics. In this age of pretty skewed media, that's precious."
