Wild Flag @ Bowery Ballroom
Wild Flag

Wild Flag recently hit the NYC-area during CMJ, selling out three shows while they were here with Eleanor Friedberger and Hospitality. The run ended at Manhattan's Bowery Ballroom. A second set of pictures from their Bowery Ballroom set are in this post. Pictures of Eleanor's set are HERE and Hospitality's are HERE.

Wild Flag will return to NYC during a 2012 tour for a much larger show at Webster Hall on April 1. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (11/11) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (11/9) at noon.

Lee Ranaldo opened their set at the Bell House. But does Brooklyn Vegan note that anywhere? Noooooooo. They're to busy trying to mate a kangaroo and a porcupine .

Seriously, W-T-F. Lee is fucking awesome and a NYC legend ... what's the deal, Brooklyn Vegan?

Park Slope mom rock.

Just be glad its not T5.

It really is shameful that in New York City, if you want to see a band that's bigger than Bowery Ballroom-capacity, nine times out of ten, your primary options are to see them at Webster and T5.

As David Cross would facetiously say, "THERE'S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY!"

All Park Slope Mom Rock should be this kind of Park Slope Mom Rock.

So there.

Also - SEVEN MONTHS IN ADVANCE BOOKING?! Are there visa issues?!

Nothing against WF, but can someone explain why WF is hitting out of the park and Corin Tucker's career isn't??

Posted by donn | November 8, 2011 4:13 PM

4:13- The combo of Corin Tucker + acoustic guitar is no match for the combo of Mary Timony + Carrie Brownstein.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 4:17 PM

Good question. I like Corin's record. It's not a classic, but its got some character. She's got the voice too.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 4:19 PM

well, if you saw Corin Tucker band live and you saw WF live you would get it

she has a whole diff energy. big departure from SK. saw her show at Bowery and it was not my thing
maybe some people were into it

4:17: Corin's live shows were electric, no acoustic guitar, if I remember right. Songs are good. I know it's not S-K or WF style but Corin's voice is great and songs are strong too. Maybe she doesn't tour enough (or at all). 4:39 - I saw Corin and WF, and not sure why it has to be S-K Mark 2 for Corin, but I guess this is what S-k fans want and they get that more with WF.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 5:00 PM

Label backed WF pretty hard. They definitely got a lot more of a promo push then Corin got

Wild Flag is officially a BV meme, along with hummus, Ted Leo, sausage, and fatrock

I'll hit all of that

bell house show was a good time

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 5:21 PM

Is the WF album really that good? Nothing against them, but come on man... not that good.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 5:44 PM

It's a solid record. Wild Flag does a good job of aping classic rock bands. Everyone always get overexcited about "supergroups." Cream, Traveling Wilburys, Velvet Revolver, Monsters of Folk, Dead Weather, Atoms for Peace. Each and everyone is a passable band and not much more.

Who?

"It really is shameful that in New York City, if you want to see a band that's bigger than Bowery Ballroom-capacity, nine times out of ten, your primary options are to see them at Webster and T5."

i'm with you on T5. but what's wrong with webster hall? the capacity there is what, 1300 or so? that's the perfect size when bands are too big for the 600-700 capacity spots like bowery ballroom and mhow.

Carrie Brownstein gave a shout out to Brooklyn Vegan on stage in SF on Saturday night. She told the story of Danzig being a pussy in Austin then played She.

@12.29!! Amen. Already done with wild flag.

T5 or Webster only venues? What about Roseland (of the sucky sound) and Irving Plaza?

Posted by Rinjo Njori | November 9, 2011 9:38 AM

I miss the days when Irving used to book good acts. Can't remember the last time there was a show at that venue that I cared about.

Posted by Anonymous | November 9, 2011 10:32 AM

@10:32 Time to face facts. It's not Irving, it's you.

Posted by Anonymous | November 9, 2011 10:38 AM

I feel like I will never get the chance to see this band. Everytime they're in town, I'm out. Damn. :(

Posted by Anonymous | November 9, 2011 10:57 AM

live show better than album

@1036 nah i'm with that guy, irving books shit nowadays.

Posted by Anonymous | November 9, 2011 1:03 PM

i like irving and they still book good acts but not as many as they used to

Some highlights from Irving Plaza's Calendar:

Sebastian Bach
Saves The Day
Thursday
Dashboard Confessional
David Cook
Devo
Big Head Todd and the Monsters

I rest my case.
