Sleater-Kinney Breaking Up
In what is relatively shocking news, Brooklyn Vegan has just reported that indie mainstays Sleater-Kinney will be calling it quits after wrapping up their current summer itinerary.
After eleven years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinite hiatus.
The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings. We feel lucky to have had the support of many wonderful people over the years. We want to thank everyone who has worked with us, written kind words about us, performed with us, and inspired us.
But mostly we want to extend our gratitude to our amazing fans. You have been a part of our story from the beginning. We could not have made our music without your enthusiasm, passion, and loyalty. It is you who have made the entire journey worthwhile.
With love and thanks,
One of their final five shows includes a stop at our very own 9:30 Club on Tuesday, August 1st. Tickets are not yet available, but we here at The Upstate Life believe that they'll most likely go on sale tomorrow at 10am considering that the date is slowly approaching (if not tomorrow, then the following week for sure). What's really cool is that we'll actually be in attendance for the group's last waltz at Lollapalooza on August 4th in Chicago. No word on whether Scorsese will be filming it just yet.
