Preview: Sleater Kinney at The Anthem, March 12

Legendary riot grrrl band Sleater Kinney is back and better than ever, and they will be coming to DC next Tuesday, March 12. Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein formed the band in Olympia, Washington in 1994 and achieved critical success thanks to a hard-hitting sound that combined catchy songwriting with sharp-edged lyricism. Sleater Kinney was an influential voice within a 90s feminist punk movement that included other notable acts like Bikini Kill and Bratmobile. The band went on an extended hiatus in 2007, during which time Brownstein played in the supergroup Wild Flag and co-created the TV series Portlandia with Fred Armisen. Sleater Kinney reunited in 2014, and this year they released their eleventh studio album Little Rope. Thirty years after first forming, the band’s sound continues to evolve in new and exciting directions with a layered and orchestral indie rock sound on lead single “Say It Like You Mean It.” Up-and-coming Native indie rock artist Black Belt Eagle Scout opens the show Tuesday evening at The Anthem. Tickets are still available here.
