1. Highlights were Mary Timony bunny-hopping around the stage, eyes rolling into the back of her head and effortlessly delivering guitar solos (some of which she tapped) over her head, on the floor, or by scraping the neck of the guitar on one of the monitors.

    "I’d like to think I learned some of those moves from Carrie Brownstein," said [EMA’s Erika] Anderson after a particularly physical performance. "I can’t do the kicks though — too lanky for that shit"

    7. “None of those other songs were about love, but this one is” — the introduction to final pre-encore song and fan favorite, “Romance.”

     
  5. I never ever get tired of watching Mary Timony play guitar. Never.

    She even manages to work out the kinks after a prolonged burst of Eddie Van Halenesque fingertapping runs by shaking her hands in time to the music. Charm for miles.

    Just realized I still hadn’t linked to my shots from Wild Flag and Hospitality at 9:30 Club a few weeks ago. This was a seriously incredible show. They destroy their instruments, chant, sing, dance, clap, scream, squeal with so much energy it’d make your head spin. My girlcrushes know no bounds for the ladies of Wild Flag….

    We did a FANTASTIC dual write-up of the show over at Brightest Young Things and there are many, many more pictures where these came from right over here.

     
  7. Near the end of Wild Flag’s set, Carrie Brownstein unleashed a wail that could make the hair on the back of your neck stand on high alert. “I’m gonna trample yoooooouuuuuuuu,” she shouted during the finale of “Racehorse.” If anyone was intimidated, it wasn’t her band, as fellow guitarist Mary Timony stood her ground with her leg perched on her amp, and drummer Janet Weiss looked dead ahead as she provided more drum fills for Brownstein to go nuts with.


    There’s a lot of hard rock at Coachella, but Wild Flag celebrate it in all its aggressive glory. Rebecca Cole’s organ exudes thick, flower-power snappiness on “Romance,” and “Glass Tambourine” captures these indie rock vets providing a mini stroll through the history of rock ‘n’ roll. Somehow, in only about six minutes, there’s bluesy diversions, guitar crests and a flighty, surf-pop keyboard. When it comes down for a breather, Timony plays her guitar as if she’s delivering a message in Morse code, one where unlocking the everlasting power of rock ‘n’ roll is the mystery at hand.
