Don’t get me wrong: When Corin Tucker returned to music with her namesake band in 2010, four years after Sleater-Kinney’s last show, it was gratifying to hear her thrilling vibrato in action again. But despite the occasional rocker, 1,000 Years suggested the righteous anger and angst we’d come to expect from Tucker had taken a backseat to more domestic concerns. With Kill My Blues (out Sept. 18 on Kill Rock Stars), she lays those fears to rest and buries them under a mountain of twisty guitars and danceable drums. Whatever you love about Tucker, you’ll find it here: “Joey” shows off that soaring voice, “Neskowin” taps a rich vein of teenage energy, and with “Groundhog Day,” the erstwhile riot grrrl gives us one of the most unabashedly feminist, fist-pumping tunes in way too long.
Tue., Sept. 18, 8 p.m., $12, with Trophy Wife, Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 215-739-9684, johnnybrendas.com.
