This morning, influential riot grrrl band Sleater-Kinney announced that it would be returning to Milwaukee for the first time since playing The Globe 15 years ago.

Doors open at 7 p.m., while the show is set to start at 8 p.m.
Tickets for the show will go on sale on Friday, Oct. 24 at noon at the Riverside/Turner Hall/Pabst's website and at The Pabst and Riverside box offices. General admission tickets cost $25.
