Punk rockers Sleater-Kinney announce Royal Oak date


  • Brigitte Sire

Recently reunited punk trio Sleater-Kinney have announced a string of North American tour dates this December, including a Dec. 8 stop at the Royal Oak Music Theatre. It's the Olympia, Wash.-born band's first Detroit-area date in more than a decade — they were last in town for a 2005 show at Saint Andrew's Hall. General admission tickets are onsale for $25, available from Sleater-Kinney's official site.

Fans who just can't wait until the end of the year to get their Sleater-Kinney might consider road tripping to Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, where they're booked as the headlining act on July 18. Find S-K's full tour itinerary here.
