SLCene Suggests: Corin Tucker Band at The Urban Lounge
CORIN TUCKER BAND, THE URBAN LOUNGE, Sunday, oct. 7, 9 p.m., $10 advance/$12 day of show
For some reason, Corin Tucker’s former band Sleater-Kinney never came to Salt Lake City on their tours, which meant in order to see my favorite band when they still existed, I had to drive to Denver, or Portland, or Los Angeles. Which I did. Often. So you can imagine how excited I am to have Tucker’s new band, the aptly titled Corin Tucker Band, come to Salt Lake City. They are touring behind the new Kill My Blues, a fine set of Tucker scorchers that is aided by the fact the band has toured together for a couple of years since she released 1,000 Years in 2010. The songs are aggressive while still being catchy as hell, and Tucker’s wail is in fine form. I can’t wait to hear it fill the Urban Lounge.
