...And just when we thought Sleater-Kinney couldn’t get any cooler (ha, we didn’t actually think that) their latest project stars Bob Burger’s character, Tina Belcher rocking out to a “live” Sleater-Kinney in her very own bedroom.
To be honest, we’re jealous.
This animated video is a collaboration of epic proportions. Carrie, Corin, Janet and the animators behind the TV show, Bob’s Burgers put together this video clip ... Read More

Yesterday punk/riot grrrl band Sleater-Kinney hosted a Reddit AMA where they not only answered questions from fans, but also released the new single "Surface Envy" from their new album No Cities to Love (Sub Pop), which is their first album in 10 years! The album comes out January 20.
Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein, and Janet Weiss also came onto The Chris Gethard Show last night as guest panelists to play the made-up, ridiculous game "All Hands on the Bad ... Read More

Babes in Toyland are back! Once dubbed "foxcore" by Thurston Moore -- a label the Babes did not appreciate, the Minneapolis-based, babydoll dress-wearing, punk power trio that ground guts onstage in the nineties have reunited their Fontenella-era lineup for a show, presumably to kick off a bitchin' tour, in L.A. at the Roxy on February 12th.
The 18 years since Kat Bjelland, Maureen Herman and Lori Barbero last stepped on stage together cannot be described as ... Read More

It was music for the kids in high school who wore worn-out Converse and an air of nonchalance. They didn’t smoke like the others, but drank coffee like water, and listened to Sleater-Kinney with the same kind of aggression. Most were unabashedly convinced they were the only ones the band were singing to.
Comprised of Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, Sleater-Kinney became enmeshed in the northwest punk scene of the early '90s. To say ... Read More

The internet exploded this am with the news that on Jan. 20, 2015 beloved punk trio Sleater-Kinney will be releasing a new album, entitled No Cities To Love via Sub Pop Records.
The intoxicatingly powerful band is made up of Carrie Brownstein (former BUST cover girl) on guitar and vocals, Corin Tucker also on guitar and vocals, and Janet Weiss on the drums. The band formed in 1994 in Olympia, WA, and put out seven albums before going on a hiatus in ... Read More
Sleater–Kinney had a twelve-year career with seven epic albums; they exuded raw, riot grrrl energy everywhere they toured. The band received high praise from Rolling Stone for “pushing rock to the boiling point,” and Rob Sheffield called them, “America’s best punk band. EVER.” Not counting their 2013 reunion (joining Pearl Jam to cover Neil Young), it has been eight years since fans have had pure Sleater-Kinney ... Read More

Celebrities. We know 'em, we love 'em, and there are a select few that never fail to inspire us.

1. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, co-stars and creators; comediennes extraordinaire. First ... Read More

The first time I saw Whore Paint, a self proclaimed-feminist, Riff Rock/No Wave/Crooner Shred hybrid band out of Providence, RI , I was immediately 16 again and at my first Sleater-Kinney show in my busted Docs, baby barrette firmly lodged against the side of my head with a newfound hope that there’s an entire league of cool ladies who I could aspire to be like. Tulsa-raised Providence resident and woman about town, Reba Mitchell (of Made ... Read More

Last week I caught a screening of Hit So Hard, the documentary about Hole drummer Patty Schemel, and despite some of its flaws (hokey title screens, confusing cuts, and about 20 minutes too many), I highly recommend it for any Hole fans. What I really took away from it though, is what an awesome drummer Patty is, and since female drummers are oft-overlooked and still rather few and far between, it inspired me to do a little video roundup of some of my favorite ...
