Giving you the music a day early:
The four-piece Wild Flag is coming to Stickyz. Why is that important? Because Wild Flag is guitarist and vocalist Carrie Brownstein and drummer Janet Weiss, two members of seminal Oregon punkish indie rock band and riot grrrl pioneers Sleater-Kinney. The other half of Wild Flag? Not too shabby either: Mary Timony of Massachusetts, mid-1990s alternative rock band Helium, and Rebecca Cole was a member of The Minders, a a frequent opener for Sleater-Kinney. Weiss and Cole also play together in The Shadow Mortons, and … well, the Wild Flag is kinda a riot grrrl super group. The night also includes lo-fi indie rock Times New Viking and Yellow Fever, a band’s music Brownstein has described as “haunted house surf music,” opening the night at 8:30 p.m. Cover is $10 for the 21-and-up show.
Little Rock singer/songwriter Adam Faucett will appear at White Water Tavern, opening for Seattle-based singer/songwriter Damien Jurado, a musician known for his rough-hewed folk rock. The husband-and-wife duo Viva Voce is also on the bill with their Portland, Ore., via Muscle Shoals, Ala., psychedelic rock ‘n’ roll. Tickets are $15 with the music starting at 10 p.m. The Arkansas born and bred Faucett released his third album, a 12-track recording of “Southern soul swamp opera” music titled More Like A Temple, earlier this month.
Here’s Wild Flag in action with their “Future Crimes”:
