Former Sleater-Kinney frontwoman Corin Tucker and her aptly named new endeavor, the Corin Tucker Band, took hold of the Echo on Tuesday night in support of second album, Kill My Blues.

Theirs is not “another stupid summer” in the parlance of 50 Foot Wave, but one of soft-serve, cartwheels and tranquil afternoons in a hammock.

Despite having to duct-tape the drumstick in said hand during the band’s set, his drumming was anything but ham-fisted(!), and he provided a rock-steady foundation for the group’s imaginative performance.
