"Kitten Forever is a 3 piece punk band born and raised in Minneapolis. They have been bandmates and best friends for 12 years and counting. Kitten Forever was born out of the strong bonds of female friendship and raised on a steady diet of feminist ideology. Getting their start in basements across the city and country, Kitten Forever has since graduated to play venues such as First Avenue, but continues to stay true to their DIY roots and politics. Mentors, matriarchs, and mommies, the band is dedicated to the empowerment of all women through music. A band of bratty banshee best friends, Kitten Forever believes in the power of punk to be constantly dismantled and rebuilt, for every party to be political but still a party, and in each and every one of you!"
