Sleater-Kinney have postponed a bevy of shows because of a back
injury suffered by guitarist Carrie Brownstein, according to
Maggie Vail, publicist for Kill Rock Stars Records. Brownstein, who had
strained her back once before, reinjured it while playing recently,
prompting a doctor to order her to bed for several weeks, Vail said.
Eight East Coast concerts, originally scheduled for March 15-22, have
been rescheduled for May 23-June 1; it is not yet known whether dates in
the Midwest will be postponed or canceled outright.
