Live Photos+ Review : Sleater-Kinney Rock Out In Boston

Date:

Sleater-Kinney came into Boston on October 29th at The House of Blues and put on one hell of a performance. Sleater-Kinney are fresh off of their recent release of their new album The Center Won’t Hold which was produced by St. Vincent and has gained a lot of positive response from fans. Hailing from Olympia,Washington Sleater-Kinney are Carrie Brownstein (Vocals, Guitar), Corin Tucker (Guitar, Vocals), and newly acquired drummer Angie Boylan after the departure of longtime drummer Janet Weiss. The Center Won’t Hold Tour is the first tour in awhile that Sleater-Kinney have played and fans were eager to get to see them back on the stage again. Before fans could get to witness Sleater-Kinney on stage they were treated to a dazzling performance by opening act Jospeh Keckler, who took the crowd by surprise when he started belting out some opera in another language with accompanying subtitles of his own. The crowd seemed to love how unique and fun he was, and it really got them excited for the rest of the night. The time finally came for Sleater-Kinney to grace the stage and you could feel the excitement in the air. The lights dimmed and out came Sleater-Kinney one by one to the screams of the crowd. They opened up the night with the title track off of their new album The Center Won’t Hold. This would be the first time the Boston crowd would be hearing these new songs live so you could imagine how excited they were. From that song they would go straight into “Hurry on Home” which is the lead single from the new album. You could see the joy on the crowds faces as they sang along and jumped to the beat of the song. The crowd were definitely in for a treat the whole night as they would be treated to a total of twenty eight songs from Sleater-Kinney which featured a wide range of songs from their discography dating back to their early days in the 90’s to the present. Just when the crowd thought they were done playing they came back out for not one, but two special encores, one of which featured a tour debut of a song called “Youth Decay”, off of their 2000 album All Hands on The Bad One. The crowd was definitely not expecting that one and it sent them into a frenzy. The band stopped the show for a minute to show their appreciation for the Boston crowd and reminded them how important it is to go out and vote and make your voice heard. They closed the night out with none other than their hit song “Dig Me Out” and it couldn’t have been a more perfect way to end such an amazing night.
