Corin Tucker Band checks in at Glass House

By Wes Woods II Staff Writer

Corin Tucker, who was part of the critically acclaimed indie-rock group Sleater-Kinney that went on hiatus in 2006, brings her new lineup to the Glass House.

The Corin Tucker Band released its debut album “1,000 Years” in late 2010 to positive press.

Doors open for the show at 7 tonight. Crazy Band will be the opening act.

In a 2010 interview, Corin Tucker was asked if her songwriting process has changed. “Well, the themes might be different because I’m in a different place in my life, but I feel I write with the same process,” Tucker said.

“I basically try and write in these

little short bursts where I pick up the guitar, play for awhile and something will come to me and I’ll try to record it quickly.”

She did set new goals for herself with the new record, she said.

“I wanted to take those ideas I had, take my time with them and really complete a whole story with each song. I think `Thrift Store Coats’ is a good example of that – of having this experience of a late fall day and hearing about two of my friends having lost their jobs. I had this flash, this moment, but I wanted to turn it into thiswhole story that painted a picture for people of what Portland, Oregon was looking like during the recession.” 909-483-8549
