Sleater-Kinney Share Live Video for ‘Modern Girl’
Just in time for the arrival of Carrie Brownstein’s brand-new memoir, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, Sleater-Kinney have shared a live music video for the song after which the book is named, “Modern Girl.” The video was captured during the recently reunited trio’s set at Pitchfork Festival in Chicago over the summer. Check it out above.
“Modern Girl” originally appeared on 2005’s The Woods, Sleater-Kinney's last album before going on hiatus for 10 years. Earlier this year, Brownstein, Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss reunited for No Cities to Love.
In December, Sleater-Kinney will launch the second run of U.S. tour dates behind their latest album. After playing the Corona Capital Festival in Mexico City, which runs from Nov. 21-22, they will head to Indianapolis for a show on Dec. 4. The jaunt culminates with five shows at different venues across New York City from Dec. 12-16. See a complete itinerary at the band’s website.
You can also grab Brownstein’s memoir, which is in stores as of today (Oct. 27), at Amazon. It details the guitarist’s life up until Sleater-Kinney’s hiatus. Her book tour kicks off tonight in Brooklyn, with more stops in Philadelphia, Austin, L.A., San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Montreal and Toronto. Along the way, she’ll be interviewed by the Roots’ Questlove, Amy Poehler and more.
