"Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl" by Carrie Brownstein
Before Carrie Brownstein became a music icon, she was a young girl growing up in the Pacific Northwest. Seeking a sense of home and identity, she would discover both while moving from spectator to creator, experiencing the power and mystery of live performance. With Sleater-Kinney, Brownstein and her bandmates rose to prominence in the burgeoning underground feminist punk-rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s. They would be cited as “America’s best rock band” by legendary music critic Greil Marcus for their defiant, exuberant brand of punk, and Carrie's a damn good writer too.
