Sleater-Kinney kicks off their 2024 itinerary in San Diego on February 28 before heading to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. March 1 sees the band in the Phoenix area ahead of a concert in Albuquerque. After a show in Tulsa (Oklahoma) on March 4, a pair of Texas dates in Dallas and Austin follow.
The band hits New Orleans on March 8 ahead of a concert in Atlanta. Shows in Norfolk (Virginia) and Washington D.C. come next. Tucker and Brownstein will then deliver a two-night stand at Brooklyn Steel beginning on March 13. The band then heads to Manhattan’s Racket on March 16.
Engagements at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club and Philadelphia’s Theatre of Living Arts follow before the band heads back west beginning in Columbus, Ohio on March 20. Additional Midwest dates include Chicago, Madison (Wisconsin), St. Paul and Kansas City. Sleater-Kinney will then perform at Denver’s Mission Ballroom on March 26.
Up next are two night-stands in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle in Sleater-Kinney’s native Pacific Northwest. The band then heads up to Vancouver before wrapping the tour in Portland (Oregon) — where they recorded their new album — on April 5.

As noted above, Sleater-Kinney recorded Little Rope in Portland at Flora Recording and Playback. Grammy-winning producer John Congleton helmed the 10-track album, which a press release described as “a meditation on what living in a world of perpetual crisis has done to us, and what we do to the world in return.” The record also deals with the grief that came after Brownstein’s mother and stepfather died in a car accident in Italy. Tucker notified Brownstein of the tragedy as Carrie had listed Corin as an emergency contact and had since changed her phone number.
The band previewed Little Rope with lead single and opening track “Hell.” The song addresses injustices and drops “us in a place and a time and a feeling and an emotion of helplessness and frustration. And revelation: of how much control we had conceded at that present moment in time,” Tucker told the Associated Press.
