...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.

  Last night marked the first of Ms. Lauryn Hill's four (currently) scheduled New York shows of her intimate Small Axe: Acoustic Performance Series.
