Sleater-Kinney (pronounced SLAY'ter KIN'ee) was an indie rock trio originally from Olympia, Washington influenced by the riot
grrrl movement of the 1990s. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the group's name is derived from Sleater-Kinney Road, Interstate
5 offramp #108 in Lacey, Washington, the location of one of their early practice spaces.
On June 27, 2006, the band announced their indefinite hiatus from performing and recording.
