Wild Flag Concert at Spaceland in Silver Lake, Los Angeles on November 19, 2010

This was one of the first live performances by Wild Flag in November 2010 at Spaceland in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. They are Mary Timony, formerly of Helium and the Mary Timony Band, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, former members of Sleater-Kinney, and Rebecca Cole, formerly of the Minders.

Mary Timony and Carrie Brownstein worked together previously on an EP called "The Age of Backwards" in 1999 as The Spells. Their new material is a great mix of their musical styles. Fans of Helium and Sleater-Kinney will be pleased when their new album comes out September 13, 2011.

This was an exciting concert because it was a small venue (holds about 250 people) and you really had no idea what they would play. They had no recorded material available and had only played a couple of shows in the preceding days. They did not disappoint and put on a show filled with energy.
