For better or worse and even if you are going there for the primary purpose of reviewing the show, you are hoping for a pleasant experience. And last month the weather made sure you didn’t get one, nothing felt worth the effort of going to a show.

The second most anticipated concert of the year, right after D’Angelo, is this killer reunion: the all girl masters Sleater Kinney. I followed em through much of their career (I got bored circa The Woods), and saw both Wild flag and the Corin Tucker Backer (the latter at Mercury Lounge where Tucker sold her own tee shirts) and I love the new album and always loved them live. So I am more than excited to catch em on Thursday (they are also playing Friday). Yes, even at Terminal Five.

There is always something magical about seeing musicians in cartoon, it’s funny and cute and Carrie, Corin and Janet have never looked so powerful at what they are doing. They make the Burgers crew bounce, kick and jump to the riotous tune, ‘A New Wave’, which is of course one song off Sleater Kinney’s latest release ‘No Cities to Love’

Well, I know we are both salivating at that three song mini set i the middle of the encore. The only song from Call The Doctor is one of the best they’ve got and it is surrounded by their two other best songs ever.

Hearing all these voices sing the hook hooked me, it taught me to hear it and as videos go it was a real blast. The song, about what we love in environments is not the environments offers a joke before a as a rebuke to David Byrne’s “Cities” -“it’s the loving we love” the band concludes.

This is a great come back as the fury contained in this second song, ‘Surface Envy’, truly demonstrates it. The descending crescendo of the guitar starting the song with the pounding drums combined with Tucker’s famous yell are a total thrill, it’s an empowering full-force ride that culminates into some serious damage

Sleater-Kinney is growing on me with every spin, it is exactly what you think, angular, atonal, guitar shards and it works like a memory reflexive. Meanwhile Taylor Swift’s least song off the upcoming album ain’t bad at all, I mean not at all, and the Game reminds us why he is the best rapper this side of Cam’ron.

Off their final (or is that last?) album The Woods, this acoustic pop song makes you wonder why they weren’t more popular with the album reaching # 80 on the Billboard 200, their best placing ever. So, of course, they broke up. This is a really quite wonderful singalong acoustic folk good feel – A
