Wild Flag has only been together for about a year, and just released its debut album last month. But the group has already earned a reputation for stunning, frenetic live performances. Wild Flag's members play with near-total abandon, thrashing on stage to bursts of guitar noise and fierce rhythms. In a concert recorded live from Black Cat in Washington, D.C. on NPR Music, Wild Flag played two new songs, plus Ramones and Television covers at the encore.

Wild Flag is: former Sleater-Kinney guitarist and NPR Music blogger Carrie Brownstein, Helium's Mary Timony, Sleater-Kinney's Janet Weiss, and The Minders' Rebecca Cole.
