There's nothing new about bands from the 1990s, from Pavement to Ride, re-forming to cash in on nostalgia and to make a mortgage payment or two. In 2007, Sleater-Kinney actually went on hiatus, but the trio didn't return simply to play the old hits, signature tracks like "Dig Me Out" and "You're No Rock 'n' Roll Fun," but to unveil a new record, No Cities to Love, their hardest-hitting, most adventurous statement to date. And their live shows have been generating the best reviews of their career, to the extent that their three-night stand at the Showbox is sold out (May 7–9, Saturday is all ages). For those without a ticket: Let’s hope somebody, such as ace documentarian Lance Bangs (singer/guitarist Corin Tucker’s husband), is documenting this tour. KATHY FENNESSY
