Sleater-Kinney‘s tour brings them to NYC in December for FIVE shows, and now the openers for all five have been announced. The first four are with newer female-fronted punk-related bands who likely consider S-K an influence, Torres, Waxahatchee, Perfect Pussy and Charly Bliss, and the last show (and most intimate) is with another veteran musician, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. The full schedule looks like this:

Dec 12: Kings Theatre w/ Torres (tickets)
Dec 13: TERMINAL 5 w/ Waxahatchee (tickets)
Dec 14: Irving Plaza w/ Perfect Pussy (sold out)
Dec 15: Music Hall of Williamsburg w/ Charly Bliss (sold out)
Dec 16: Market Hotel w/ Lee Ranaldo (sold out)

Torres also tours with Palehound in 2016, Waxahatchee plays the big Ground Control anniversary show in NYC, and Perfect Pussy (who just played the last-ever live show at Elvis Guesthouse) play the S-K show right in the middle of their December tour.

If you missed it, we just interviewed Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney. Earlier this year, Lee Ranaldo’s former Sonic Youth bandmate Kim Gordon interviewed her too. Watch the hour-long video of that below…
