SCORE ONE FOR OLYMPIA >>>
Last night at Northern in Olympia, Wild Flag - perhaps at least momentarily better known as Carrie Brownstein, Mary Timony, Janet Weiss and Rebecca Cole - played its first show ever. As Brownstein noted (herself and Weiss Sleater-Kinney alums) most of her bands have played their first show in Oly, so the packed and much-anticipated all-ages gig on an otherwise slow Wednesday night in our state's capital made plenty of sense. It was also amazing - a show people will be talking about for a long time. Here are some photos of the performance taken by Nicole Martin. The Volcano's Rev. Adam McKinney will be providing a blog account of the evening at some point later today on Spew.
Wild Flag has sold out shows later this week scheduled for the Doug Fir in Portland and the Tractor Tavern in Seattle ... but Oly got 'em first. It was awesome.
