Janet Weiss: Wild Flag "Ran its Course"

Wild Flag/Sleater-Kinney/Quasi member Janet Weiss has revealed that Wild Flag is over.

In an interview with The Skinny, Weiss said that the group is officially done. “It [Wild Flag] was great but I think it just kinda ran its course,” Weiss said. “It’s hard to have a band when you live five hours apart by plane.”

Weiss formed Wild Flag back in 2010, alongside Sleater-Kinney bandmate and Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein. After going on an “indefinite hiatus” in 2006, Sleater-Kinney reunited last week, joining Pearl Jam onstage for their show in Portland. Brownstein, Weiss and Corin Tucker all joined Pearl Jam for a cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In the Free World.” Check out the video below.
