SAY IT AIN'T SO.....
Wednesday, June 28, 06
I don't even want to be writing this, but I logged onto Yahoo! today and there it was on the front page: Rock trio Sleater-Kinney shutting down. The announcement is also on the band's official site and on Subpop as well.
I can sum it all up by saying that this is basically the worst news ever. "Indefinatie Hiatus" doesn't mean they are breaking up, but doesn't mean they are staying together either. 11 years with Sleater-Kinney and I can't imagine a year without them. Thanks to the ladies for the music and inspiration. You are irreplaceable and will be missed by everyone. It's just going to have to sink in now. Grieve with fans, SK google news feed and for those lucky enough to score a ticket to their last shows:
July 29 - Mellwood Arts Center - Louisville, KY
July 31 - Starlight Ballroom - Philadelphia, PA
August 01 - 930 Club - Washington, DC
August 02 - Webster Hall - New York City, NY
August 04 - Lollapalooza (Grant Park) - Chicago, IL
November European Tour Dates
Sleater-Kinney is canceling their
November European tour dates. The reason being that Carrie has had some bad
allergic reactions and has been advised by her doctors to rest. You can read
more on the
official site or this
article about how Corin and Janet played an encore as duo due to one of
the allergic reactions.
New Interview, Katrina
Added a new
interview where Carrie talks about the band's new sound on The Woods
(thanks Brian!). Sleater-Kinney will also be playing a show at Chicago's
The Metro along with The Pony's. All proceeds will go toward The
Red Cross Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund. You can buy tickets
