Jackie Soro ’14 is hatching a plan and sends you this message:
Dear student body,
If you are female-identified and/or willing to wear a dress and you like to hit things and/or kind of play the drums and are turned on by riot grrrl pop punk and/or voluble public displays of feelings, email me atjsoro@wesor ndoltonthorn@wes.
In which Riot Grrrl is resurrected at Wes (again, amiright?) and parties like it’s 1994 while Ducktails (Real Estate’s Matt Mondanile) hovers over a stereo sampler like his flannel depends on it. Carrie Brownstein powershots at no extra cost. (I think these were taken during pre-encore set-closer “Racehorse.” Whatasong.) Extra special thanks to 2014’s Grand Father for a spirited opening set.
I’m not entirely down to post a review of a show I organized, so I’ll let the artists speak for themselves: through post-show tweets, Facebook posts, and images/videos from the show itself. Click past the jump tweet for more coverage.
A reminder: ticket pick-up for Wild Flag and Ducktails will be in downstairs Usdan today from 4:30 to 6:30. Reserve your ticket online here before pick-up. Bring $5 and your WesID. If you recently wrote a book about “the true story of the Riot Grrrl revolution,” your ticket is probably on the house, I guess.
