So Sunday was the day I saw Sleater-Kinney in the flesh for the first and probably only time I will have the opportunity and they were amazing! I mean, I know every show review I've read about them says they're great live but I always like to reserve my opinions after I actually experience it. One of the thoughts I took away from the show was, "holy shit, Janet Weiss is on point!"
She is seriously the one beat (oh! Ya see what I did there?) of Sleater-Kinney. She's the glue that's keeping everything together. In fact, here's a video from the show so you can see what I mean (hopefully I won't get in trouble for uploading this onto the internet):
So when you see a band live, notice how the beat is being kept. Look out for the good drummers.
