Kino Kimono kicked off a brief March to Washington tour to support Planned Parenthood, and the group visits DC on Saturday to play as a headliner for Not My Inauguration Fest at the 16th Street House in DC.

Over the summer, Brooklyn singer Kim Talon released her first album as Kino Kimono, teaming up with Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth to record 10 songs on the record, Bait Is for Sissies, published by Ghost Ramp (a label owned by Wavves). On tour, Kim is joined by Tarra Thiessen on guitar (Sharkmuffin, Ex-Girlfriends) and Jordyn Blakely on drums (Stove, Jackal Onassis).

In a statement, Kim talked about the importance of this March to Washington tour, saying, “The upcoming inauguration still seems surreal to me. I can’t believe the rate at which our society is accelerating backwards. Every morning I pinch myself, struggling to get a hold of our new reality, and then ask myself, what actions can I take to slow this catastrophic landslide? As a woman, especially, our current political climate is heartbreaking. It’s impossible to fully grasp how we’ve come this far only to be on the brink of losing so much.”
