Wild Flag: 'It just sort of exploded'
Carrie Brownstein is rolling on the stage while simultaneously trying to play her guitar and break it. The normally reserved Mary Timony is right there with her, grinning while playing her guitar behind her back. Rebecca Cole keeps the keyboard bass line pumping while pogoing. And Janet Weiss, behind the drums, is rolling and tumbling with her sticks while doing her best not to crack up. She knows she’s got the best seat in the house for what would prove to be Wild Flag’s eighth and final show at the South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas, last March.
