"hey were kinda boring when they played Webster hall in 2007"

I was going to post the same thing. Not sure if I saw them at WH though. Wasn't it Irving Plaza?

Was definitely Webster Hall

Great news. Also: Comets on Fire!

Slint is post-hardcore now? I guess you missed them in the 90's

Slint and Codeine together. DO IT.

They played Irving in 2005 during the big reunion tour - http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/19/arts/music/19slin.html?pagewanted=print&position=&_r=0

I went to one of the Irving shows (think the Friday one), the lead singer stayed in the shadows, seemed like he hates the spotlight. We couldn't give away a ticket to that show outside the venue that night, oddly enough.

"Was definitely Webster Hall"

Just looked it up. They definitely played Irving Plaza, so that was the show I saw. It was boring as well. Don't think I saw them in the '90s (so many shows, one big blur).

@2:00...that was announced nearly a month ago.

Spiderland is awesome. H8trz gonne h8

Ok, have your take at Slint. Done? Ok! Let's get Comets On Fire to do a proper N. American tour!!!

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2013 3:31 PM

2:12, in order? because I'm pretty sure they played all of Spiderland at Irving in '05, maybe not in order though

Post-hardcore? What have Slint ever done for the hardcore punk scene? They don't play DIY venues, and this obvious cash grab offends my sensibilities. $lint is more like it. They turned their back on the Louisville hardcore scene of REAL bands like Malignant Growth and Fading Out.

Posted by D | July 23, 2013 4:05 PM

D, shut the fuck up. You are literally the saddest sack of shit alive.

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2013 4:16 PM

D is correct. If this band is really post-hardcore why is this show not at a post-all ages, post-DIY venue?

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2013 4:22 PM

D, you are comically stupid

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2013 4:23 PM

D - too far. I always thought Slint sucked, but to say they turned their back is just silly... and you forgot Crain.

Posted by xTAINTx | July 23, 2013 4:25 PM

crap - I got fooled. not the real D.

Posted by xTAINTx | July 23, 2013 4:33 PM

slint was never anything near hardcore, never mind post-hardcore

Posted by hgfd | July 23, 2013 4:35 PM

It's true. Slint turned their back on the Louisville post-hardcore scene. They're no better than the Jimmy Gestapos of the world.

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2013 5:05 PM

When these same dudes performed as The For Carnation (with or without Pajo) they were 10x as good as the Slint reunion shows, yet they played to 35 people a night.

Maybe today Slint today does not have an impact, but let me tell you, back when Spiderland came out, they did and it's melancholy, dynamics, intensity and sound influenced an entire indie scene; so did post Slint projects by band members.

Often, it's all that was influenced that overshadows how important a band with a new sound and song writing is. The mass of bands that were influenced is a testament to their originality, but yeah, unfortunately it can get old when 20 bands sound similar.

In my opinion, Nosferatu Man is still an intense tune to this day as is Good Morning, Captain.

Slint has a home in my Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame.

Saw Slint at the Metro in 2005. Was thought to be their last show of the tour at the time, so everyone was eerily silent/respectful between songs like an old Dylan show. Totally freaked the band out. Such a cool show.

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2013 11:05 PM

I don't think anyone is minimizing the importance of their work. The fact is that the are boring live. (Quasi) instrumental post-whatever doesn't have to suck live.

Slint is the best yeah..
