Sleater-Kinney, GIF-ified: Here Are 16 From Their Five-Night NYC Stand


2015 was a massive year for Sleater-Kinney: They released their first album in a decade, No Cities to Love, bowled critics over with it, toured behind it all over the world and wrapped it up with a five-night string of shows in New York. Starting at the Kings Theatre and ending at the newly re-opened Market Hotel, the Olympia punk trio defended their Rob Sheffield-christened title of America’s Best Punk Band Ever as they rocked out at venues that just increased in intimacy earlier this week.

We were there for three of the five performances and figured that everyone could use an animated reminder — or, like, 16 of them — of Sleater-Kinney’s might, complete with a flailing Fred Armisen cameo and one especially heartwarming capture of Janet Weiss at her kit with the M Train rolling behind her in the distance, above. Check the rest out below.
