Sleater-Kinney Adds Dates to 2015 Reunion Tour
As previously announced, everyone’s favorite riot grrrl act with a name that sounds like a law firm is getting back together. Sleater-Kinney has ended their nearly decade long hiatus with a new single (which you can listen to below), an upcoming album (No Cities to Love, slated for a January 20 release), and a reunion tour to. The band is booked from early February through the end of March in cities like Spokane, WA (at the Knitting Factory); Boston, MA; and Washington, DC; before heading off to Europe. Well, due to popular 90’s-era demand, Sleater-Kinney has added a second leg of American shows. These shows begin on April 16 at the Granada Theater in Dallas, TX, before heading to Austin, TX; New Orleans, LA; Raleigh, NC; St. Louis, MO; Columbia, MO; Phoenix, AZ; Los Angeles, CA; Portland, OR; and Vancouver, BC. The band will end things with a band in the Pacific Northwest with two shows at The Showbox in Seattle, WA, on May 8 and 9. For more information, visit Sleater-Kinney’s website.
Formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994, Sleater-Kinney was one of the vanguard acts of the 90s indie feminist music movement that blended stripped down punk with liberal political and social commentary. Despite their iconoclast sound and attitude, the group rather infamously gained notoriety for an article in SPIN Magazine that revealed the bi-sexual romantic past of the band’s founders and core members, Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein. They released seven albums from 1995 to 2005.
