Bikini Kill’s Tobi Vail, Kathi Wilcox, and Kathleen Hanna appeared onstage together for the first time in 20 years over the weekend. The occasion was the conclusion of a three-night event at New York’s The Kitchen, celebrating the release of Pitchfork editor Jenn Pelly’s new 33 1/3 book about the Raincoats’ debut album. Vail, Wilcox, and Hanna reunited to perform “For Tammy Rae,” which you can watch a frustratingly short excerpt of below, damn you Instagram and your video length limits:

The band broke up in 1997, and this was the first time this many of its members have appeared together since. But Hanna is apparently in a nostalgic frame of mind these days; she also put Le Tigre back together last year to record the pro-Clinton single “I’m With Her.”

And the Bikini Hill reunion wasn’t the only big homecoming at The Kitchen last weekend; Palmolive, the Raincoats’ original drummer, performed with the band for the first time since 1979.

Pelley’s book is out now.
