I love this band! Washington's own Ex Hex, fronted by Mary Timony, formerly of Helium and Wild Flag. This all-woman power trio totally rocks. Have a listen (bonus: flying saucers in the video!) and if you like what you hear, and you're in the DC area, Ex Hex will be playing December 30th at my favorite venue, the Black Cat. The Optimistic Leftist will be in the house!
I saw a show of theirs previously at the Black Cat and it was one of the best shows I've ever been to.
