The Corin Tucker Band came through St. Louis last night, performing at the Firebird in support of their latest album, "Kill My Blues."

Tucker -- formerly a member of pioneering riot grrrl band Sleater-Kinney -- delivered a commanding performance. Her vocals continue to be as affecting as they were nearly 20 years ago, and as her life has evolved to include wifehood and motherhood alongside her riot grrrl identity, her music has followed suit.

Nothing stops the steady march of time. As we grow older, we are forced to move beyond our twenties and face the realities of an ever-evolving existence. Corin Tucker and her bandmates proved there is no need to fight that evolution because the future is bright with possibility.

Local favorites Bruiser Queen --- fronted by Morgan Nusbaum on guitar with Jason Potter on drums -- held their own as the opening band, setting a rockin' tone for the evening.
