Let me just say, this is awesome.
Just before the release of their new album (which we wrote up recently), Sleater-Kinney was interviewed by one of our new favorite comedy duos, Abbi Jacobson + Ilana Glazer of Comedy Central’s Broad City.
The panel discussion took place in New York City’s Ace Hotel in front of an intimate crowd of 150 or so lucky souls and clocks in at just over an hour, all of which is worth watching.
Oh, to have been in that room. But we’re all runners up thanks to NPR, who shared the videotaped Q+A with Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss last week, embedded below.
As NPR put it: “The mutual respect onstage was unmistakable: When Glazer and Jacobson insisted that Broad City wouldn’t exist without Sleater-Kinney, Tucker replied, ‘When we watch your show, I want to write a song.'”
We’re trying out a little bit of Web synergy today, so after you watch this interview, head over to Forgotten Favorite, the music journal we started with Pel, to read our retrospective on Sleater-Kinney and hear their relatively ancient cover of Boston’s classic “More Than A Feeling”.
