Free Sleater-Kinney concert download 

While I'm bummed to hear that Sleater-Kinney is going on "indefinite hiatus," I was glad to be pointed to NPR : Sleater-Kinney in Concert. Their full concert from August 3rd in Washington is available for streaming or download.

I've listened to half of it so far and it is good stuff. Just keep in mind that it seems like they were still getting warmed up during the first song. One Beat is a song that probably isn't to the taste of many anyway (though I love it), but it seems weak here. After that, things start cooking though.

Sleater-Kinney is one of the bands that started me on the indie music journey. All Hands On The Bad One was being played in a used record shop (Turn It Up! in Northampton) and I loved it. I googled some lyrics I remembered and grabbed a couple of mp3s from their official site. Then when joining eMusic a little while later, they were one of my first downloads.

Speaking of Turn It Up, I grabbed the original Vampire Hunter D movie for $5 at a recent sidewalk sale. I've been meaning to check it out for a while.
