Wild Flag @ Williamsburg Waterfront (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
12

After playing the High Dive in nearby Champaign-Urbana last night, Wild Flag are here to play two sold out shows at the Empty Bottle, both tonight (10/8) and Sunday night (10/9).

The Sleater-Kinney, Autoclave/Helium, Minders supergroup played their first and second Chicago shows this summer, at Subterranean and Wicker Park Fest.

Joining them for both dates will be current tour mates YellowFever. This Austin, TX-based duo pack a punch, and I doubt it will be long until we're hearing more about them.

As you know, Empty Bottle books/puts on events at the IL Centennial Monument in Logan Square. Tomorrow's 4PM event is billed as "surprise guests." Wild Flag are in town for two days, could there be a correlation? We'll find out soon enough.

Check out Wild Flag's tour dates below, along with some videos from their Subterranean show shot by GONZO CHICAGO's/our own John Yingling.
