Sleater-Kinney donating sales from merch (including rare 7″) to Black Lives Matter
"Like many of you, we are outraged, and we stand in solidarity with the fight against police brutality, systemic racism and white supremacy," Sleater-Kinney write on their website. "We must not only show up for racial justice but also hold ourselves accountable, and engage in the work of being anti-racist." To show support they're donating all proceeds from the sale of their Pink Triangles T-Shirt and the "Animal" 7” (which they note was only available "at a handful of live shows") to Black Lives Matter. The fundraiser lasts through June 12. Pictures of both the tee and 7" are below.
Sleater-Kinney are still scheduled to tour with Wilco in August though with coronavirus, cancelling tours and festival through the fall, it's seeming less likely to happen by the day.
