#15: the passion of joan of arc (carl theodor dreyer, 1928)

music friday: sleater-kinney 2002


Ten years ago, in the first couple of weeks of this blog, we saw Sleater-Kinney on two of the three nights of their stand at the Great American Music Hall. I wrote about the shows here and here. As you can see from the webcam photo, we were going to be late for the show on the 16th. The band was just about to hit the studio to record One Beat. Here are a few of the songs they played for us:

Start Together


Youth Decay”, featuring perhaps my favorite S-K lyrics of them all (“I’m all about a forked tongue and a dirty house”) and Janet’s finest moment amongst a zillion fine moments.

And “Good Things” … why do good things never want to stay?
