Sleater-Kinney played their first UK show in almost a decade on Friday night (February 20) at the three-day 6 Music Festival at the O2 Academy Newcastle. Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss were introduced to the stage by 6 Music DJ Nemone, who joked that they were enjoying the English weather as it had been minus 20 in Chicago, where they had played a gig just three days earlier.


“We are in the middle of touring our record ‘No Cities To Love’ in America – but we wanted to come here and play for you today,” Tucker announced. The band played a nine song set, which included ‘A New Wave’.

Bob’s Burgers centres on the Belcher family and their hamburger restaurant. Having debuted in 2011, the animated sitcom has so far run for 79 episodes and is expected to return for a 22-episode sixth season.
