There was a moment last night, during Wild Flag‘s set at the Black Cat, when singer/guitarist Carrie Brownstein basically gave herself over fully to her band’s musical frenzy. During “Racehorse,” she fell to her knees as if in a trance, slapped her own face a couple of times, and writhed around on the stage, all while pulling chords from her guitar and taking the audience down a hypnotic path. Even the other band members were looking on in amazement. NPR streamed the sold out show last night; give a listen to it here.
