The band Bait Bag calls North Haven Island, Maine, home, but their influences come from Washington State’s Riot Grrrl movement of the '90s. Their feminist punk sound and ethos challenges sexism, racism, transphobia and fascism and responds to reproductive justice, childbirth, climate change, and biology.

Contributor Caroline Losneck reports on Bait Bag’s inspiration and perception on their small, isolated island — population 350.
