Pearl Jam & Sleater-Kinney in Portland - 11/29/13 (via @eli_w_n)
August 12, 2006 was the last time Sleater-Kinney performed together...that was until November 29, 2013! Corin Tucker, Janet Weiss and Carrie Brownstein joined Pearl Jam at the Portland, Oregon stop of their tour for a cover of Neil Young's 'Rockin in the Free World' at the Rose Garden last Friday, like Pearl Jam, Carrie and St. Vincent did in Dallas a couple weeks ago. Corin sang, Janet banged the drums with Matt Cameron and Carrie played guitar. Ah, the good ole days.
On our BrooklynVegan Blog Radio show on SiriusXMU, we have played a Sleater-Kinney song on every show since their hiatus and claimed that it wouldn't stop until they reunited. Does this count as a reunion? Personally, this isn't what I was holding out for, but it may be the start of something good. Fingers crossed. Check out the video below.
