KU in May – Video from San Francisco, new venue in Austin

The show at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco and the Sleater-Kinney Afterparty/Girls Rock Camp Benefit at Cheer Up Charlies in particular were probably the two best shows we’ve done since the Matador 21 shows back in 2010, it was great seeing so many new and old friends at both. Here’s a clip from San Francisco and a still from CUC, hope to see y’all again very soon!
