Sleater-Kinney RIP

I just got back from Lollapalooza, day 1, where I was lucky enough to get to watch Sleater-Kinney's penultimate show, and last outside of their hometown of Portland, from the side of the stage.

Some people have hedged their bets by calling them one of the best bands of the past 10 years. Others have called them one of the best punk bands. But I'm not afraid: they're one of the best bands, period, and they'll be very, very missed.

In other news, the two main stages at Lolla are literally a half a mile apart. No joke. Needless to say, that cuts down significantly on my stage hopping.
