Photos: Wild Flag At The Subterranean

I saw Wild Flag last night.  It must have been 100 degrees inside the Subterranean, despite the air conditioning.  But the women of Wild Flag didn’t let that stop them from performing a “blistering” set.  (Ok, sorry.  I had to go for the pun.)  There’s a lot to talk about, including the fact that I have a busted lip from a flying PBR can.  Yep, one of Carrie Brownstein’s signature kicks sent a projectile hurtling toward my face!

I’ll write up a short review of the concert a little later, but I wanted to get a few of the photos up.  To check out the full set, you can visit the new brand-spanking new Guitareste Flickr stream.

Here you are — enjoy!

Yo La Tengo Photos

Ok, I know this is sort of off-topic, but we went to see Yo La Tengo the other night and I wanted to share my photos. Georgia Hubley is known to pick up a guitar every once in awhile, and in my opinion, she’s one of the best drummers working today, so we’ll just squeeze this one in, ok?

Yo La Tengo Chicago February 2011

From L to R: James McNew, Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley

On their current tour, Yo La Tengo is doing two sets, determining their first set by spinning the wheel shown in the center of the photo.  The wheel has things like “Condo Fucks,” or “Songs that Start with S” on it.  In Chicago, we ended up watching them perform the Chinese restaurant episode of Seinfeld.  It was cute, but didn’t go over all that well with the crowd.  But in typical YLT fashion, the trio came back out after a break and rocked everyone’s faces off.  The Yo La Tengo proper set consisted of old favorites like “Autumn Sweater” and “Sugarcube.”  They also played “Periodically Double or Triple” from the album Popular Songs, and played a Condo Fucks song during the first encore.  Click on this link for the full set list at setlist.fm.
