I don't have words to express how excited I am about this.

"We are Wild Flag. We've never played a show outside our practice space so thanks for coming to this one."
Those were Carrie Brownstein's first words at the first show for her new supergroup, featuring 90s indie icons Mary Timony of Helium, the Minders' Rebecca Cole, and Brownstein's Sleater-Kinney bandmate Janet Weiss. The location? Olympia, Washington, the city where many of the era's finest riot grrrl bands formed. As Brownstein noted, "I'm pretty sure 90 percent of my bands played their first show in Olympia. It's nice to continue that tradition."
