Wild Flag closed the night at Lido with a cover of The Ramones, Do You Wanna Dance and while I’m listening I’m thinking that Wild Flag might go the same way as the Ramones. They already have the history and the potential is definitely there, as their recent self-titled Merge records release attests. Wild Flag are an all female super group with serious indie-cred. Consisting of members of from Sleater Kinney, Helium & The Minders, the four have all had intertwining histories over the past two decades.
Carrie Brownstein (guitar/vox) played in Excuse 17 from 1993-1995. Janett Weiss (drums/vox) and Carrie Brownstein made up half of the group Sleater-Kinney from1994 until 2006. Janet as well drummed for Quasi. They were based in Portland, Oregon af
