New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Wild Flag

Wild Flag at AmoebaThe funny, talented women of Wild Flag sat down with us recently for a What's In My Bag? episode. Wild Flag is the first major musical post-Sleater-Kinney project for Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, and includes Mary Timony (Helium) and Rebecca Cole (The Minders) to boot. The four members of Wild Flag had interconnected musical histories during the last decade, playing in various bands that toured or collaborated with each other, but somehow the formation of the Wild Flag was the first time the four of them ever played together at the same time. Wild Flag released their self-titled debut full-length in November 2011 on Merge Records.

You may also know Carrie (and her humor and wit) from the TV show Portlandia which she co-created and stars in with Fred Armisan (SNL).

Unfortunately Janet couldn't make it on the day of the shoot, but Carrie, Mary, and Rebecca shared their picks which included Lionel Richie, Yes, George Jones, Iron Maiden, Destroy All Movies, and more. They also put a call out for a Vinyl Nanny to take with them on tour...
