Sleater-Kinney's five night run in New York drew out hardcore fans and Fred Armisen as the band played off their "comeback" album No Cities to Love and other classics.
 

Sleater-Kinney

14 Dec 2015: Irving Plaza — New York

Just hours after Sleater-Kinney rocked The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (the taping, not the broadcast) the trio hit the stage at Irving Plaza, the third night of their five night run in New York City. The tour was “shrinking” in that each venue the band played was smaller than the one preceding it. Drummer Janet Weiss told The New York Times, “Everything felt like, really scrappy and sort of wild, slightly out of control,” Ms. Weiss said. “It’s a smaller, more live-sounding stage, so it was loud and super raw sounding.”

Check out some clips from the show below photos of the energetic show. And make sure to read why No Cities was one of PopMatters favorite albums of 2015.
