The year was 1994 when Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein formed Sleater-Kinney in Olympia, Washington. With Janet Weiss on drums (and some others), the riot grrrl trio went on to release 7 "searing" albums for the next 10 years, but in 2006, went on hiatus. The members reunited in 2015 for one more full-length, No Cities To Love, and Live In Paris, which is the first official recording of Sleater-Kinney's "famously blistering" performances, was recorded at Paris's historic La Cigale in march of 2015. Drawing The Woods, One Beat, The Hot Rock, Dig Me Out, Call the Doctor, and the aforementioned 2015 LP, favorites like "Modern Girl," "Jumpers," "I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone," "A New Wave," and "No Cities Love" make the cut on the 13 tracker, which does a phenomenal job of bringing the live experience to wax.
