Sleater-Kinney Dig Me Out Tribute Album to Benefit LGBTQIA+ Youth Center

Last week we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Sleater-Kinney's breakthrough album Dig Me Out.  Now it is announced that a host of artists will be contributing to a benefit tribute album.

The artists covering tracks from the classic record include: Courtney Barnett, St. Vincent, Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires, The Linda Lindas, Margo Price, Low, Tunde Adebimpe, Wilco, Black Belt Eagle Scout, Big Joanie, Self Esteem, and Tyler Cole

The album will benefit  a local LGBTQIA+ Youth Center in Seattle. While the track listing hasn't been released, as to who will be covering what song, it is sure to be exciting with all of those talented people onboard. 

Here is an original track to get hyped for this tribute:

  1. Dig Me Out wasn't simple to categorize because of its mix of off-kilter riffage, punchy hooks, and compelling poetry. It wasn't easy to pigeonhole because of its blend of off-kilter riffage, punchy hooks, and powerful lyricism. Sleater-Kinney were always more meaningful and fun to listen to than a lot of the skate/pop punk bands from a few thousand miles south of Olympia, WA, but their influence can now be found in many of the same areas.
