Don’t feel bad if you didn’t get to hear “Dig Me Out” or “I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone” last night. For starters, Sleater-Kinney still treated Twin Cities fans to 23 songs at First Avenue, the same number offered at all the other stops on the tour. Also, one of the highlights Saturday was “Youth Decay,” which they only played at one other show so far. And who’s to argue with them playing so much off the new record when the new record is so good? Ironically, though, the only song they didn’t play from “No Cities to Love” is one of my personal faves, “Hey Darling.” Maybe next time.
