Wild Flag plays two-night stand at Empty Bottle

This recently released Wild Flag album was actually much better than I expected. Be dubious of “super groups.” This one is made up of two former Sleater-Kinney members — Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss — Mary Timony of Helium, and Rebecca Cole of the Portland band the Minders. It’s a strong lineup — Timony has made some solid solo albums and Sleater-Kinney had moments of greatness. What impresses me is how good the album is from start to finish.

Unfortuntately, the band’s two-night stand at the Empty Bottle is sold out. Look for Wild Flag to come back to a larger venue in the near future. If you get offered a ticket this weekend, take it.
