Wednesday Night Live

Carrie shows us some metal.

TONIGHT: When Sleater-Kinney stepped away for a minute, in 2002, they were pretty much the biggest thing in indie rock. Three years later, Modest Mouse and the Postal Service have sold a million albums, college radio sounds as if it were being programmed by Nina Blackwood, and the S-K ladies are royally, beautifully pissed. They're pissed at Interpol for being fake-gay and mopy and '80s and, y'know, Interpol. They're pissed at each other because Corin's been off doing mommy stuff. And they're pissed at you because you let Interpol and the Killers and all that crap happen while they were off making The Woods (Sub Pop), their angriest, noisiest, bitchiest album to date. Now it's payback time. The grrrls are at Avalon, 15 Lansdowne Street in Boston, with Dead Meadow, and tickets are $18.25; call (617) 931-2000.

1. During Franklin Soults' interview with Carrie Brownstein, Carrie got lost in the woods, fell down, and had to call the doctor. For real. Later, she called out Interpol.

2. WHICH SLEATER-KINNEY GIRL ARE YOU? (OTD, apparently, is Janet Weiss. Awesome: we always wanted to be in Quasi, anyway.)

3. Like you don't have this already: Sleater-Kinney, "Entertain" (mp3)

Previously: Cami, Carioli, anonymous?, Zacharek, Taylor

Brian Coleman's Rakim Told Me book party, Laura Cantrell, Cult of Point Break -- Boston's indie rock repertory theatre -- does Big Star, Dead Meadow.
