Sleater-Kinney play their final show tonight in their adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon. Damn, I wish I were there. I considered flying up there for it, but the tickets sold out in seconds. You shouuld check out the webcast of their August 3rd show at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC on NPR's "All Songs Considered" radio show here. Please. It's for your own good. (Also, check out the article and, in particular, the quote from "The New Yorker." How true!)
I realise I already wrote about this a few weeks ago, but few bands have had an impact on my life the way S-K has. I'm not ashamed to say I've gotten a little weepy lately when thinking about it. Bands come and go, but Carrie, Corin, and Janet will be with me forever.
