Janet and Carrie Brownstein form new supergroup.

September 28, 2010

With Sleater-Kinney on indefinite hiatus, Janet and Carrie Brownstein have reunited to form a new group called Wild Flag with former Helium front-woman Mary Timony and Rebecca Cole of the unfortunately-defunct The Minders. According to Pitchfork, the band are now recording their first album for Merge. Aside from the obvious connection between Carrie and Janet, Janet has also played with Cole in a side project called the Shadow Mortons.
In conjunction with the formation of the new band, a smattering of tour dates on the west coast have been announced in November, which are:

11/10 Olympia, WA – The Northern
11/12 Seattle, WA – High Dive
11/13 Portland, OR – Doug Fir
11/17 Sacramento, CA – The Hub
11/18 San Francisco, CA – Bottom of the Hill
11/19 Los Angeles, CA – Spaceland
11/20 San Diego, CA – Casbah
11/21 Pomona, CA – Alladin’s

Unfortunately, Chicago is not on the west coast so I’ll have to wait for a bigger tour, but I wish Janet & friends well in the new band!
