A League of Their Own: Wild Flag Play Ball in ‘Electric Band’ Video
Janet Weiss, Carrie Brownstein, Mary Timony, Rebecca Cole costar alongside bears
“It was too strange and surreal of an idea to refuse,” Carrie Brownstein told NPR of the new video from the former Sleater-Kinney guitarist’s current band, Wild Flag. That goes for watching it, too: As Brownstein, drummer Janet Weiss, singer-guitarist Mary Timony, and keyboardist Rebecca Cole perform the super-charged indie rocker “Electric Band,” from Wild Flag’s wonderful self-titled debut album, they play baseball. In a Little League stadium. Lobbing water balloons. Against a team of people in bear costumes. As Major League Baseball celebrates its annual Fall Classic, Wild Flag help us hold onto those halcyon days of summer just a little bit longer.
