October 6th, 03 If you have the Sundance channel - your in luck. On Friday October 17th at 9:00 P.M. they will premiere "Songs For Cassavettes." The film takes a look at the do-it-yourself world of underground rock from the perspective of the musicians themselves. Hailing from different parts of the country, from the indie-rock hub of Olympia, Washington to Washington, D.C., the film documents bands that kept a low profile in the wake of the alt-rock explosion of the early 90's. The film shows live footage and interviews with Sleater-Kinney, along with a variety of other bands. Check your local listings for the correct time. Here is a link to the Sundance Channel TV schedule.

September 18th, 03 You can read a news article about the first NYC gay school and how Sleater-Kinney, and other artists are set to help record an album to help raise funds for the school.

August 9th, 03 Added a wall of fan pic. Stephen Malkmus of the band the Jicks had a quote about Sleater-Kinney in a recent interview. I thought it was kind of cute...

"I know [Sleater-Kinney's] drummer... Janet Weiss, and she's just really social and friendly," Malkmus said. "She's like at this trivia night thing that's every Tuesday night and I see her. Actually the whole band goes. It's kind of geeky. They go to trivia and then they eat gelato in the break. That's like a Sleater-Kinney night out together."
