You know who should have played at the Grammys last night? Sleater-Kinney. The rocking band would have infused the tediously slow show with some much-needed riotous energy, and raw artistry.

Some music-lovers did get to see Sleater-Kinney on Sunday night at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, Washington -- their first live show in nine years. The performance kicked off the tour for their new album "No Cities To Love." Watch a clip from the show below, and head to Stereogum for some awesome photos from the show, taken by Alex Crick.
