For those of you who made a music-related New Years resolution to see more gigs this year, this is your chance - we’re giving a way a pair of tickets to see Wild Flag on their UK tour!
Following the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut LP, an intimate headline show at The Lexington and a stellar performance at ATP, formidable indie super-group Wild Flag are now preparing to embark upon their first UK tour, which climaxes at the Electric Ballroom on the first of February.
The four-piece Indie Rock group hail from the greenest city in The United States, Portland. Members of the current lineup have played in numerous cult bands previous to Wild Flag, including Sleater-Kinney, Helium, Quasi, The Minders, and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks.
Band member Carrie Brownstein also stars in her own sketch comedy show Portlandia, a hilarious send-up of life in Portland, alongside SNL star Fred Armisen. The show has been around since the beginning of 2011 and has garnered a definite cult-following; satirizing the city’s sub-cultures.
Their self-titled debut album was released under Merge Records, and is an exciting and unpredictable mix of styles and influences played with undeniable exuberance.
