The crowd went wild on Tuesday night as Wild Flag played the Casbah. The supergroup tore through tracks from their fantastic debut album, as well as covers of The Ramones’ “Do You Wanna Dance?” and Television’s “See No Evil.”
Unlike their Casbah show last year, Carrie Brownstein played a more subdued role this time around, frequently letting Mary Timony handle frontwoman duties. Timony for her part was happy to oblige, swinging her guitar around and writhing on the floor during the band’s set-capping jam session. But no matter who occupied the spotlight, Wild Flag delivered the kind of fierce, unadulterated rock and roll you just don’t see from indie bands very often. It was thrilling, it was dangerous, it was elating, and yes, it was wild.
